Example text

The following is a brief description of what can be found in the cabinets of the petitioning bureaus: (1) registration forms for letters and visits; (2) case files that include petition letters, meeting minutes, and investigation reports; (3) governmental reports on petitioning events; (4) periodic summaries and analyses of petitions, work reports by petitioning officials, and speeches by local or central leaders concerning petitioning work; and (5) statistical data compiled by the petitioning bureaus.

When little reliable information is available from elections and public opinion polls, petitions and appeals constitute an important source of information about popular preferences. Another purpose is to hold governmental agents accountable. With few alternative sources, such as a reliable media, the party-state must identify the misdeeds of its agents through negative feedback from petitioners. 3 Finally, the party-state can also garner information about the most volatile segments of the population by monitoring the petitioning activities.

The regime has also proven to be very adaptive. When the leadership was alerted to the rise of popular contention, the organizations and procedures of the petitioning system were substantially improved. Consequently, the petitioning system has begun to produce richer and better data. Furthermore, the archival system has become more open. This is not to suggest that governmental data are readily available to everyone. Some conventional strategies for conducting fieldwork in China are still very important.
