China’s Governance Puzzle: Transparency and Participation in a Single-Party State
Event: Wednesday, March 29, 2017
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
China is widely viewed as a global powerhouse that has achieved remarkable economic transformation with little political change. Less well known is that China’s leaders have also implemented far-reaching governance reforms designed to promote transparency and increase public participation in official policymaking. What are the motivations behind these reforms and what impact are they having? This puzzle lies at the heart of Chinese politics and could dictate China’s political trajectory for years to come.
Recently released by Cambridge University Press, this extensive study documents the origins and scope of these reforms across China, and offers the first systematic assessment by quantitatively and qualitatively analyzing the impact of transparency and participation on important governance outcomes.
