CHSC6909 - Government and Public Services in China

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Minglu Chen


The unit focuses on China's changing forms of government and the consequences of this for public services delivery. Public administration and management are examined in the context of changing governance practices, including fiscal and administrative decentralisation, the re-conceptualisation of the public goods framework, and the role of private provision. Emphasis is given to Central-local government relations and the policy networks that ensue. Public policymaking and implementation are then analysed to asses state capacity, policy efficacy and regulatory and accountability issues.
