A Research Agenda for Public Administration

The book has contributions that will assist students of public administration/public sector management and public policy, especially new PhD students, but will also be a useful resource for more established researchers to understand the major emerging issues within the field.

G. Zhiyong Lan


This chapter discusses a research agenda for public administration in China for the coming years. It explains what China’s ‘Xi Jinping New Era’ means, its implications for China’s public administration research and practice, the new opportunities and challenges it presents, and the puzzles public administration researchers have to solve.The author uses familiar Western analogies such as Thucydides Trap, Tacitus Trap, Middle-Income Trap, the Kindleberger Trap, and the Gramsci Trap to illustrate the presumed predicaments China’s public administrators have to deal with and pinpoint some key concerns of China’s public administration research.
