End the Manchu Dominance is a decision unique to China China.

It requires that China is not civilized (and technically not a great power either although that is not possible when it's not civilized) and that the year is after 1860.

It is allowed when the average consciousness is at least 3.0.

It gives 0.1 years worth of research points. Additionally all Manchu POPs gains 2 militancy and 1 consciousness.

The research points will help china westernize although 0.1 years (around 35 days) of research points is not a lot. The extra consciousness and militancy might be a problem, but Manchu only make out a tiny proportion of the population, way less than 1%, since the substate Manchuria Manchuria is most likely not annexed yet and they hold most of the Manchu Pop.

In the game files it is called 'Clear out the Manchu Elite instead

Description

Since the beginning of the Qing dynasty, the Chinese Imperial administration and bureaucracy had been dominated by a powerful Manchu elite, and the Qing emperors had traditionally discriminated heavily against ethnic Han. In the 1860s, Empress Dowager Cixi effectively ended this practice, when she entrusted the country's most powerful military unit to a man of Han background, Zeng Guofan, during the suppression of the Taiping rebellion. By getting rid of the Manchu elite, we can take an important step toward modernization.
