What strategies or institutions were adopted by foreign powers to maintain their privileges
and domination in China in the late nineteenth-century?
The strategies and institutions that were adopted by foreign powers to main their
pr ivileges and domination in China in the late ninetieth century, were those that
emphasized oppression. They used legal documents in thud form of treats created by
their rule to maintain privilege. The treaties fur ther impinged on Chinas sovereignty by
limiting their import tarif fs, and opening their markets to Western goods. They also used
legal exclusion to assimilate the Chinese. The Chinese found that they were excluded
from foreign clubs and parks and treated as second-class citizens, and so more and more
enrolled in missionary schools to assimilate into the ways of the westerners. though it
wasnt a large reform. IT was also a way of forcing religion among the Chinese
population, although most people didnt convert upon graduations, they were given the
western thought that embodies religion today.
