CPAR – Chinese Public Administration Review

Chinese Public Administration Review (CPAR) is the first international journal specifically addressing the issues of Chinese, East Asian, and comparative public administration.

CPAR is the official journal of the Section on Chinese Public Administration (SCPA) of The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). Published by the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University-Newark, CPAR is a peer-reviewed journal with a very strong international editorial team. While CPAR is the first international journal specifically addressing the issues of Chinese public administration, riding on the rise of China, Asia and increasingly global interconnectedness, CPAR is expanding its focus beyond China to embrace Asia and the whole Pan-Pacific region.
