In order to understand the prospect of China’s quest for modernity, this course examines the key governance challenges that have emerged during its transition from a socialist system to an increasingly marketized economy and diversified society. The course has three parts. Part I introduces contending analytical perspectives on the governance of transitional political systems, such as the gradualist reform model, the developmental state model and the predatory state model. Part II first analyzes the causes, scale and dynamics of several governance challenges facing contemporary China, namely legitimacy challenges, regulatory challenges, distributive challenges and external challenges, and then examines the policies of the Chinese government in tackling these critical issues and applies the different analytical perspectives in evaluating their efforts. Part III concludes the course by comparing the developmental trajectories and experiences in China with those in other developing countries.
