These years China has specifically emphasized on its own culture, building up the BRI and applying the culture to foreign policies. Different from core socialist values which seems to be universal values, culturalism promoted in China is a more domestic and centralized ruling tool. Core socialist values seems to emphasize on democracy, but in China, it does not correspond to the Document No.9. Therefore, there is a transition from core socialist values to culturalism which may not officially notified by the government but can be shown on various aspects. This paper analyzes China’s domestic policies that support the transition.
