Abstract

To review the ten year implementation of the community service policy of
the Peopls's Republic of China, community service implementers and academics located in Beijing were interviewed. By employing implementation
theories as a framework of analysis, a number of implementation problems
are identified. In terms of policy characteristics and the structuring of
implementation, this case shows that the objectives are not specific enough.
The decentralized implementation strategy allows the implementers too
much discretionary power. The shortage of qualified and motivated personnel further complicate the issue. Lastly, the policy environment of Beijing
does not lend adequate support to the policy.
