Between hierarchy and patriarchy: The duality of Chinese bureaucracy in history

From the perspective of comparative institutional analysis, Zhou examines the historical origins of Chinese bureaucracy and state building in China. Zhou argues that Chinese bureaucracy took shape in response to two forces: the power of the absolute state and the differential mode of association in Confucian culture. As a result, the institutions of Chinese bureaucracy in history were characterized by the duality of hierarchy and patriarchy. This historical legacy has had a strong influence on the remaking of Chinese bureaucracy and state building in contemporary China.

VIRTUAL: The Public Sector & Resource Allocation (afternoon session)

In what ways do the effects of historically discriminatory government policies linger today, and what scope exists to reduce their remaining harms? And does under-representation of minority groups in the ranks of government officials necessarily undermine the de facto fairness of de jure impartial institutions? Recent research provides insight into these questions, as well as into the implications of changing the way that race itself is conceptualized in empirical discrimination research.
