Community Governance in China and Israel

Click here for the Chinese translation of this page.

While world-wide based evidence about the importance of communal resilience and bottom-up governance in confronting social turbulence and its detrimental impacts is piling up, the China Journal of Social Work will dedicate a special issue (expected publication date: April 2023) to the theme of “Community Governance in China and Israel”. This special issue aims to (1) introduce and discuss the latest developments in community governance in China and Israel; (2) compare the approaches, challenges and opportunities of community governance in China and Israel; (3) theorise the practical approaches of community governance and (4) shed light on the role of professionals (social workers and others) in shaping bottom-up communal governance and its deep meaning. All papers, including empirical and theoretical ones, that relate to the issue of community governance in China and/or in Israel are welcome.

Suggested Questions

  • What is the meaning of community governance in China/Israel?
  • How did community governance develop in China/Israel?
  • What are the challenges and opportunities for the development of community governance in China/Israel?
  • What are the roles of social workers/NGOs practitioners in shaping community governance in China/Israel?
  • What difficulties and dilemmas are faced in adapting community governance theories in China/Israel?
  • How can we summarise and theorise the experiences of community governance in China/Israel?
