Description


This book draws on more than a decade of workshops organised by the Greater China Australia Dialogue on Public Administration, involving scholars and practitioners from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia. Although these workshops recognised the major differences in the institutional frameworks of these jurisdictions, until recently they focused largely on the shared challenges and the diffusion of ideas and approaches.

As rising international tensions inevitably draw attention to areas where interests and philosophies diverge, it is the differences that must now be highlighted. Yet, despite the tensions, this book reveals that these jurisdictions continue to address shared challenges in public administration.

The book's contributors focus in detail on these four areas:

  • intergovernmental relations, including the shifting balance between centralisation and decentralisation
  • budgeting and financial management, including during and after the COVID-19 pandemic
  • the civil service, its capability, and its relationship with government and the public
  • service delivery, particularly in health and aged care.

This book is aimed at a wide readership, not only at those within the jurisdictions it explores. It emphasises the importance of continued engagement in understanding different approaches to public administration-confirming fundamental philosophical differences where necessary but also looking for common ground and opportunities for shared learning.
