Reexamine the traditional approaches of Chinese public policy participation

Chen Feng

Abstract


While network and other emerging media become increasingly contributing to the fourth wave of democratization, it’s necessary for us to reexamine the traditional approaches of Chinese public policy participation from a cyber-democracy perspective. Based on the dissection of the traditional approaches, this paper argues that they are facing the dilemmas of ineffectiveness because of the overloaded realistic participation demand aroused by the economic development and the emergence of new media, and as a spillway and regulator valve network policy participation is able to make up for the deficiency in traditional one, less than perfect but effective especially in contemporary China.
