Decoding regional cooperation and governance in Central China: a case study in the Chang-Zhu-Tan urban cluster

Town Planning Review (2014), 85, (4), 433–456.

Abstract

In China, regional cooperation is a new phenomenon and it is currently receiving increasing attention and recognition from government and scholars. This paper attempts a comprehensive exploration of how power has been transferred from the central to the various local governments within this mechanism of regional cooperation in the Chang-Zhu-Tan urban cluster (CZT) during the past two decades. Regional institutions have been established as a multi-tiered arrangement to deal with regional cooperation issues. However, state-centric skewed governance, political competition among local governments and inter-ministry rivalries has caused complex power interplay for the regional institution and regional cooperation.
