The operational patterns’ socialization of the CPC’s grass-roots organizations is not only an important issue in theoretical terms, but an issue urgently needed to be solved in practical terms.As links between political parties and society, grass-roots party organizations are the organizational foundation of political parties for mobilizing society. The power of political parties is determined by the effective operation of the grass-roots party organizations. And, to a large extent, the effectiveness and influence of grass-roots party organizations depends on the degree of internal correspondence between their organizational structure, operational mechanism and the social structure. However, with the reform and opening up and socialist market economy,the original social structure and social organization has been broken. This leads to the decrease of internal correspondence degree between the previous seting up, functional orientation and operational patterns of grass-roots party organizations of the CPC and the social structure which has changed. The traditional space of grass-roots party organizations is squeezed and their effectiveness and influence is declining. In this case, the grass-roots party organizations of the CPC should realize the socialization of their operational patterns. Only in this way, the current dilemma that the grass-roots party organizations has been "weakened" or even "marginalized" can be broken. Further, it can strengthen the grass-roots party organizations’ capacities of social service, social cohesion and social influence, and thus consolidate and expand the social basis of the ruling party.The dissertation consists of three parts, including introduction, body and conclusion.The introduction mainly discusses the significance of this dissertation, the current research status at home and abroad, the research methods, as well as the emphasis, difficulty and innovation and other aspects in the research.Starting with defining the related concepts of this dissertation, the first chapter puts forward that the socialization of grass-roots party organizations’ operational patterns refers to the process of achieving the positive interaction between grass-roots party organizations and society through the open idea of entering into society, the adjustment of their structure and function, the integration of social resources, the application of socialized methods, tools and techniques, and the institutional innovation in accordance with changes in social development. Based on this, the chapter combs and examines the socialization of grass-roots party organizations’ operational patterns from the theoretical perspective of a multidisciplinary point of view, including not onlythe perspective of social capital theory, resource dependence theory, non-power influence theory and so on, but the perspective of the theory of Marxism.The second chapter mainly inspects the the historical process of the socialization of the CPC’s grass-roots organizations’ operational patterns before the reform and opening up, and on this basis, sums up the historical experience of the period in four aspects, including building the organization network covering the society in a flexible and diverse manner, playing the function of safeguarding the interests of the masses, cultivating and harnessing the various social mass organizations actively, striving to obtain "non-power influence."The third chapter mainly discusses the practice and innovation of the socialization of the CPC’s grass-roots organizations’ operational patterns since the reform and opening up. On the basis of researching its background, reasons and the exploration courses, taking Chaoyang District, Beijing and Qiaokou District, Wuha as an example, the chapter focuses on the analisis of its typical pattern in practice- regional grass-roots party organizations’ operational pattern,which is noted that there are two outstanding issues. Namely, firstly, the role and function of grass-roots party organizations are misplaced, and the capability and level of service should be improved; secondly, the grass-roots party organizations and party members lack of the driving force of integrating into society and the degree is also not high.The fourth chapter mainly examines the experience on practice of the foreign parties with typical reference in the aspect of the socialization of grass-roots party organizations’ operational patterns. According to the different types of political parties, respectively, the chapter examined the Communist Party of Cuba and Vietnam as the representative of the Communist Party, the British Labour Party and the German Social Democratic Party as the representative of the Party of European Socialists, Singapore People’s Action Party as the representative of the National Democratic Party, as well as the Greens and "tea party " as the representative of the emerging party in detail. On this basis, the experience on practice is summed up in three aspects: Firstly,the attractiveness of the political parties to the masses of society should be enhanced through adjusting its own organizational structure and adopting organizational setting and operation in a flexible and diverse manner. Secondly, the party’s influence in the social sphere should be enhanced through supporting, nurturing and taking advantage of social organizations. Thirdly,communication with the society should be enhanced through becoming adept at using the media and using the Internet and other new technologies.The fifth chapter mainly discusses the countermeasures of achieving the socialization of the CPC’s grass-roots organizations’ operational patterns in the future, which must adhere to the "open" idea of operational patterns, achieve the party’s organizational structure and function of adjustment through the flat and networked organization system and the development andexpansion of social services function, integrate and take advantage of social resources with the socialized method, and apply the technical means of new media and big data and the dynamic mechanism of evaluation and incentive to achieving the institutionalized goal of positive interaction between grass-roots party organizations and society ultimately.The conclusion mainly proposes that if we want to have a deeper understanding to this problem, it must not only be considered longitudinally under the historical background of Social Change, reconstruction and integration of China’s society since modern times, but be considered laterally under the time background of globalization, informatization, networking. It is a long-term process to achieve the socialization of the CPC’s grass-roots organizations’ operational patterns, which requires the repeated games between society and the traditional "Habits" of grass-roots party organizations in the new social environment.
