Collaborative Governance on Public Security in Concentrated Contiguous Destitute Areas: A Case Study of Wuling Mountains Area in China


In 2011, China initiated the strategy of Regional Development and Priority Poverty Alleviation in Concentrated Contiguous Destitute Areas. The vital method as well as the goal of this strategy is to revolutionize current special difficult situation by collaborative development of regional integration and basically realize the goal of building a well-off society in an all-around way synchronizing with the country. The poor condition of public security is the fundamental factor of constricting the development of Chinese contiguous destitute areas, thus leading to its lagged development. Collaborative governance of public security is not only the most basic component of regional integration but also a fundamental requirement of improving the security condition in contiguous areas for the successful implementing of the strategy mentioned above. This paper points out a framework by mainly focusing on Wuling Mountains areas in China. The system consists of conventional and unconventional public security as its content, as well as “the collaboration of public security” and “the cooperation among regional zone” as its structure.
