Abstract:

This article explores the relationship between the Chinese Government’s new social policy, the Internet and youth development. Implementation of the Three Represents Theory indicates that the Chinese Government is moving from a directive, top-down approach to managing social development and towards a more consultative, interactive style using the Internet as a new medium to access and respond to youth cultural ruptures in the fabric of Chinese society. The article draws on the emerging genre of ‘grunge and shock’ literature to illustrate the types of cultural ruptures concerning the Government in relation to the direction of youth development. Responding to the change, the Government has begun to utilize several characteristics of the Internet to efficiently consult and interact with youth by linking into the popularity of this controlled new media technology to access youth and provide immediate information on issues. The result is that the Government is potentially more responsive to emerging youth issues relating to structures, values and roles in China’s changing social milieu.
