Banning Logging, Conserving Legitimacy: Large-Scale Ecological Restoration under Xi Jinping


“Organizational ideology” (Schurmann 1968) continues to be constitutive in contemporary Chinese politics. The issue of the urgency of coherence between values and action shapes decision-making and how the leadership conveys its decisions to the public. The case study of the recent logging ban in natural forests shows that the policy sends symbolic messages of political will and regime capacity to reconcile conflicting interests of development. The official propaganda turns it into a signature policy of Xi Jinping while constructing the path-dependency of party-rule and attempts to substantiate future projections with empirical data from the past. Nevertheless, the policy is contested among experts and also bears political risks.

China: Three Models Of Development

Sprache: EnglischSeiten: 10-39https://doi.org/10.20446/JEP-2414-3197-36-1-10
  • Abstract
  • Literatur
  • Keywords

In the past 40 years, China’s growth has been phenomenal. And, since the global financial crisis and the Great Recession in the major capitalist economies, China has continued to close the output gap with the leading capitalist economies. Will China continue to catch up in the next 40 years or will it suffer the fate of the so-called ‘middle income trap’ experienced by other ‘emerging’ economies? The article considers three possible models of development as offered by, respectively neoclassical growth theory; Keynesianstyle forced investment; and a Marxian model based on the law of value and profitability. The neoclassical model highlights China’s comparative advantage of cheap and plentiful labour; the Keynesian model concentrates on the role of China’s high investment ratio; the Marxist model emphasises China’s exceptional restriction of the law of value in capitalist production: or what might be termed, ‘socialism with Chinese characteristics’.

Governing China's Informal Waste Collectors under Xi Jinping: Aligning Interests to Yield Effective Outcomes

Sprache: EnglischSeiten: 61-87https://doi.org/10.20446/JEP-2414-3197-36-1-67
  • Abstract
  • Literatur
  • Keywords

The present article analyses the changing relationship between the Chinese government on the one hand and informal waste collectors and pre-processors on the other. Over time, the modes of engagement have varied considerably, and since Xi Jinping’s tenure as president, the approach of central and local governments has taken a surprising turn: instead of forcefully incorporating informal actors, new collection schemes appear to provide more latitude to informal actors. While the schemes feature formal characteristics, e.g. uniform logos, attire and machinery, daily operations are individually organised by informal actors. Based on a model of institutional evolution, this article argues that the hereby improved effectiveness in the domain of waste collection results from formal institutional solutions that sufficiently address the interests of all involved stakeholders.

Gerhard Hauck: "Was der Entwicklungsforschung als Gegenstand bleibt..."

  • Abstract
  • Literatur

Der Sozialwissenschafter Gerhard Hauck (* 1939) studierte Ethnologie und Soziologie in Heidelberg und beschäftigt sich seit den frühen 1960er-Jahren mit entwicklungstheoretischen Fragen. Im deutschen Sprachraum zählt er seit vielen Jahrzehnten zum Kreis der wichtigsten KritikerInnen des dominanten Entwicklungsparadigmas. Als transdisziplinärer Grenzgänger überschreitet er konsequent die Schranken institutionalisierter Fachrichtungen und gewinnt etablierten Themengebieten neue Facetten ab. Im Interview schildert Hauck, was ihn ursprünglich zu einer kritischen Beschäftigung mit Entwicklungsfragen bewegte, wie er die Zukunft der Entwicklungsforschung sieht und welche Rolle die Verhandlung von Gerechtigkeits- und Wahrheitsfragen in seinen Werken spielt.
