 Failures in Governance and Institution Building

Show Summary Details


The governance of consultative polities in East Asia lost its place in the process of political and economic liberalization, most notably in managing industrial relations. Democratization ushered in periods of political instability and a new and far more assertive labor movement. The demise of the consultative mechanism unveiled serious coordination problems at the national, industrial, and enterprise levels, and underscored the need for effective bureaucratic and government institutions.

Keywords: governance mechanism; consultative polities; democratization process; labor movement; institutional quality
