Abstract

Rural governance mechanisms come in the following four areas. First are the methods of production of authoritative rural governance organs, including possibly democratic elections, dispatching from superior levels, and agreements made by the people. Second are relationships between authoritative rural governance organs and other quasi-governmental organs and private bodies. Third are fiscal relationships in rural governance, including financing methods for fiscal incomes and basic rules for the use of fiscal expenditures. Fourth are basic functions and departmental division of labor in rural governance organs. Summarily speaking, in this chapter we will discuss questions of rural public order, excluding rural public finances. When necessary, however, we will touch on rural public finance. As there are already chapters in this book dedicated to the analysis of rural fiscal relationships, rural social security, rural infrastructure, and rural specialized cooperatives, in this chapter we will avoid discussion of those topics unless it is necessary.
