Professor Wang Dahai’s major project of the National Social Science Fund “Research on the Transformation and Upgrading of the Social Governance System under the Background of New Urbanization” was reviewed by the National Office of Philosophy and Social Sciences and concluded in the form of “exemption from appraisal” (No. 2019 & J037). The project produced a series of papers and a monograph, and the relevant research results received important approvals from national and provincial leaders, which provided a reference for social governance decision-making and policy innovation in China.
Based on the social governance dilemma arising from the transition from traditional urbanization to new urbanization in China, the project starts from solving the problem of “meta governance” of social governance system, and constructs a three-dimensional analysis framework of social governance under the background of new urbanization. That is, rights protection, improvement of people's livelihood and maintenance of order, summing up and perfecting the experience and methodology of China's social management local pilot under the background of new urbanization, constructing a social governance quality index under the background of new urbanization, and proposing a new urbanization social governance system transformation. The upgrade approach is from the fragmented society management under the logic of “no accident” to the overall social governance of treating both the symptoms and the roots under the logic of “people-centered”.
