Brill Research Perspectives in Governance and Public Policy in China

Editors-in-Chief: Tony Saich and Edward A. Cunningham
This quarterly journal addresses a key gap in the academic literature related to China’s modern governance and public policy, providing timely and comprehensive review articles targeted to both specialist and non-specialist readers. Each edition will be dedicated to one article, of approximately 50 pages in length, which surveys the literature on a given topic and provides a framework for understanding the evolution of thought in this area of inquiry.

Topics will include key thematic areas of change and continuity in Chinese governance as well as the institutional perspectives critical to understand modern China. Topic areas will concern: inequality, social policy, financial policy, health policy, environmental policy, water and energy policy, civil society, the politics of urbanization, democracy, labor, human rights, and gender. Additionally, articles will address questions of ideology, the role of the NPC, the role of the Party, local politics at the village, county, and provincial levels, civil/military relations, and business/government relations.

The journal’s target audience will be a composite of both specialist and non-specialist readerships. Sinologists trained in a variety of disciplines, including political science, sociology, economics, public policy, and other areas will find utility in up-to-date review articles. As China’s rise in the global political, economic, and social spheres attracts increasing numbers of non-Sinologists eager to understand China’s domestic levers of decision-making and power, this journal will also provide an important introduction to current analysis. It is the hope of the editors to create an intellectual bridge between such populations, and between past and current state-of-the-art thinking on Chinese governance.
