Modes of Relationship between the State and Social Enterprises in China:
Implications for their Institutional Effectiveness

Ms. Echo Wang Lei
Joint PhD candidate in political science at the National University of Singapore and King’s College London


Abstract:The study explores the nature of the relationship between the government and the newly emerging social enterprises, and analyses the implications of such relationships for their organisational function and performance in China. It explains how the delivery of social welfare services, particularly those that serve to socially integrate minority communities through job training and employment, are being shaped and delivered in China through social enterprises, and how their modes of interaction with the state ultimately influence their institutional effectiveness and social roles. Based on a qualitative analysis of a specific type of Social Enterprise called the ‘Work-Integration Social Enterprises’ (WISEs), the study argues that the four modes of relationship, identified by the engagements between the WISEs and the state, reflect the strategic preference of the state in recruiting and incorporating private partners into its social service delivery network.
