Abstract
This paper examines the fundamental logic that shaped the Chinese
administrative reforms during the past three decades from the perspective of the
“double movements”: marketization and self-protection of society. It is contended
while the rebuilding of the Chinese administrative state, up until the end of
the 1990s, was mainly driven by the single movement of marketization, with its
focus on reforming the government to accommodating to the development of a
modern market economy, it now has to respond to the countermovement of selfprotection
of society which demands the government to meet social needs and
preserve social values. However, as the two movements hold different goals and
move in opposite directions, administrative reforms from now on must be carried
out in the tension of the double movements, which is a demanding challenge.
