DFG Project: Infrastructure provision in China
DFG project on the topic of: “Infrastructure provision in China – A cross-sectoral and multi-level analysis”. During the next three years, this research project will identify key determinants for the success and failure of infrastructure provision in China’s authoritarian and decentralised political system. Studying the impact of infrastructure governance on project outcomes across different industry sectors, administrative levels and financing models, this project offers comparative insight into the political processes that determine the direction and results of China’s infrastructure boom of recent decades. By clarifying how governance factors determine and affect the logic of infrastructure provision in China, this project furthermore aims to resolve inconsistencies within the existing governance literature and ultimately expand its reach to incorporate the Chinese case.
