Vietnam Governance Research Projects

research entry to one stop shopGoSFI's key research activities in Viet Nam are as follows:
Public Administration Reform Research focuses on transformations in public administration and the extent to which these processes have in turn redefined the functions of the state and its relations with society.  The research takes place within the context of Vietnamese doi moi (reform)  adopted in 1986 at the Sixth National Party Congress and officially endorsing Vietnam’s transition away from a centrally-planned economy.

Restructuring of Public Service Delivery Research focuses specifically on the restructuring of state education and health care services, with an emphasis on management decentralization, financial autonomy, and the demand for increasingly diverse services.
