Civil society in Shanghai: Market economy transition, new residential neighbourhoods and the potential for democratic participation.
Jamie Lynn Chiang
Written in English
Civil society developments are emerging from within Shanghai"s new residential neighbourhoods that have the potential to foster democratic participation. While political networks of the old communities continue to play an important role in the associational life of Shanghai"s residents, the organizations in the new communities differ in fundamental ways. This can be attributed to the market economy transition and the changes to Shanghai"s economic, social and political norms, as well as to the rise of the middle class as politically creative agents voicing collective concerns through the Homeowners" Associations. Yet, from interviews with residents themselves, the feeling is that civil society is not in direct opposition to the state"s desire to protect its widening market interests. Rather, one future possibility is their working in tandem with government, to enhance the potential for democratic participation and political openness.
