Assessing the Quality of Governance in China (Sonoma)  
Governance Project Workshop

Date and Time
November 12, 2012 - November 13, 2012
9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

By Invitation Only

Francis Fukuyama - Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at FSI Stanford University

In Western scholarship, governance is equated with democracy, and its institutional attributes of transparency and accountability. The apparent effectiveness of the Chinese state is thus an enigma. Are the Chinese able to control corruption better than in other developing countries? How responsive is the state to the demands and concerns of citizens? In what ways do the quality of state institutions vary across governmental levels, policy areas, and regions?

The purpose of the workshops is to bring together a group of Chinese and Western academics and experts who have done empirical research on how Chinese government works to address these and other questions on governance in China.
