Personal Profile

Dr He Jingwei, Alex is Associate Professor and Associate Head (Research and Development) of the Department of Asian and Policy Studies, at The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK, previously known as HKIEd). He received his PhD degree in Public Policy from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore and bachelor degree in public administration from Xiamen University. Dr He specializes in public policy analysis, health policy and governance and social policy reforms, with particular reference to the Greater China region. He has published extensively in these areas, contributing articles to leading international journals and publishing houses, including Public Administration Review, The China Quarterly (2013, 2018), Health Policy & Planning (2014, 2016, 2019), Social Science & Medicine (2014, 2021), Health Policy (2018, 2021), Journal of Contemporary China (2015, 2021), Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis, Social Policy & Administration, Policy & Society, Public Administration & Development (2011, 2021), and Ageing & Society. He also has a rich portfolio of academic articles and book chapters published in Chinese.

In May 2021, the University Grants Council (UGC) announced the results of the 2020 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), Hong Kong’s official scheme assessing the research performance and achievement of public universities. All eight public universities in Hong Kong participated in the disciplinary area of political science (including public administration, public policy, and international relations), or Unit of Assessment #25 (UoA 25), submitting their best research impact cases. In the entire Unit, Dr He's impact case was among the only two research impact cases unanimously rated ‘outstanding’ (four star)—the top score—by the international expert panel.

Since 2012, Dr He has secured various external as well as internal research grants totaling to HK$ 3.5 million, including five major projects funded by the General Research Fund (GRF x2), the Public Policy Research Funding Scheme (PPR), the Early Career Scheme (ECS), and the World Health Organization. He led a GRF project (rated 5.0 full score by the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong SAR Government) that examined the sub-national variation of public attitudes towards social policy in urban China. He is currently leading a PPR project that examines the demands for long-term care insurance in Hong Kong through quantitative methods and attempts to offer concrete policy recommendations for long-term care financing to the SAR Government.

In July 2019, Dr He was selected as a core member of the consortium of The Asia-Pacific Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (APO) of the World Health Organization (WHO), which comprises leading scholars from Hong Kong, India, and mainland China. This is the first time APO has funded a research consortium that is not formed by clinicians. Over the next three years, Dr He will work with collaborators from Fudan University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, and the Shanghai Health Development Research Center on a number of strategic health policy issues in the Asia Pacific region, including the integration of health services for the elderly and long-term care financing.

In a high-profile report jointly published by the World Bank, the World Health Organization and the Chinese Government in 2016, titled "Healthy China: Deepening Health Reform in China, Building High-Quality and Value-Based Service Delivery", six of Dr He's research works are heavily cited, making him one of the very few international scholars recognized in such a high-level study.

Dr He is Associate Editor of Policy and Society: An Interdiscplinary Journal of Policy Research (SSCI Q1) and the Journal of Asian Public Policy (SSCI), Executive Member of the East Asian Social Policy Network (EASP), Editorial Board Member of Urban Governance (Elsevier), Chinese Public Administration Review (公共管理評論) and Journal of Public Administration (公共行政評論), Adjunct Research Fellow of the Center for China and Globalization, and the alumnus of the Ronald Coase Institute. He was a member of the President's task force for strategic development of HKIEd and served as the Programme Leader for Master of Social Science Education (Greater China Studies) from 2011 to 2013. He was twice the recipient of the President's Award for Outstanding Performance in Research, EdUHK, Dean's Research Prize of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (2015-2016 and 2016-2017) EdUHK, the Ronald Coase Institute Fellowship, NUS Research Scholarship, and received the First Prize of the All-China University Student Research Project Competition (the Challenge Cup, with teammates) when he was a undergraduate student at Xiamen University.

Dr He serves as anonymous reviewer of many premier international journals, including Policy Sciences, Governance, The China Quarterly, Policy Studies Journal, Social Science and Medicine, Public Administration, Health Policy, Journal of Social Policy, and Public Health. He is also a Panel Member (Humanities and Social Sciences) of the Assessment Panel for Competitive Research Funding Schemes for the Local Self-financing Degree Sector, Research Grants Council, Hong Kong.

As a policy scholar, Dr He actively participates in policy advocacy and knowledge transfer. His articles appeared in leading newspapers, including China Daily, South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Economic Journal, Ming Pao and Singtao Daily. He was interviewed by the Phoenix TV, China Central Television (English channel), The Financial Times, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK), ATV, China Radio International, South China Morning Post, and CBS News in the US on various policy issues.

Project

The Dynamics of Policy Experimentation in the Social Policy Sphere: Policy Innovation and Diffusion in China’s Public Hospital Reform
This study seizes upon an ideal “lab”, China’s public hospital reform, to explain the logic and dynamics of health policy experimentation in an authoritarian state. Commencing in 2010, this large-scale nationwide experimental program is built on multi-phase and multi-level recursive experimentation, with the participation of nearly 200 Chinese cities. A wide range of experimental modalities and policy instruments are observed. Built on a mixed-methods research design, this study seeks to explain social policy innovation and diffusion in China’s public hospital reforms. Upon completion, this project will enrich theoretical knowledge on policy experimentation in authoritarian systems, and update scholarly understanding on the approaches of governance in contemporary China, especially in Xi’s era.

Local Welfare Regimes and Perception of the State: A Survey of Popular Attitudes towards Social Security in China
We will shed light on these questions by examining popular perceptions of social policy in China through a survey of 3,000 urban citizens in three mainland provinces. Because social policy is largely funded and implemented by local government in China, we seek to exploit regional variation in social policy provision to examine how different social welfare configurations at the provincial and sub-provincial level impact citizens’ views of social policy and the state. We have already received US$ 80,000 from the Hong Kong SAR Government General Research Fund (project # 18615816) to conduct the survey in two provinces: Guangdong and Gansu. These two provinces represent a wealthy Eastern province and a poor Northwestern province, but we would like to add Hunan, a middle-income province in central China, to the project. Including Hunan in the survey will enable us to test more effectively our hypotheses related to perceptions of local social policy configurations and to generalize our findings more broadly. We are seeking additional support from the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation to add Hunan to our survey.

Public Attitudes towards Social Policy in Urban China: Sub-national Variation, Local Welfare Regimes and Implications for Policy Reforms
Public support is an essential component in the legitimacy of welfare policies. Because the financing and provision of welfare ultimately depends on citizens’ willingness to pay taxes and insurance contributions, it is vital to understand public attitudes towards the social policy system and individual sectoral policies. This is even more critical for less developed countries which are undergoing major social policy expansion, such as China. While the structure of the Chinese social policy system is largely in place, low benefits, heavy contribution burden and unequal entitlements have been a major source of public discontent. Compounding these problems is the fragmentation of the system. As the country’s decentralized approach to social policy has resulted in different “worlds of welfare”, this remarkable sub-national variation may have shaped public attitudes, which in turn will determine popular support for social policy reforms in the future. In social policy literature, the self-interest thesis and ideology thesis have explained popular support for social policies, while in recent years the institutional set-up was found to be a critical factor in explaining cross-national variations. As the sheer size of China and the fragmented social policy system are analogous to a cross-national comparison, it is thus reasonable to hypothesize that the notable variation in local welfare systems also determines people’s attitudes. Which “regime type” tends to engender greater support? To what extent can institutional set-up, self-interests and ideologies account for the variation at both the individual level and collective level? Is there significant variation in public attitudes towards different sectoral social policies? What are the implications for future social policy reform and state legitimacy? These questions are of theoretical as well as policy significance but remain unanswered. This project aims to fill this gap with rigorous interdisciplinary investigation. We will select Guangdong Province and Gansu Province, which represent regions of high- and low-economic development as well as different provincial welfare regimes, for analysis. A series of local welfare regime types will also be identified within these provinces. Employing a sequential exploratory research design, this study will use a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in data collection and analysis. Upon completion, it will advance scholarly understanding on public attitudes toward social policy in a populous country with substantive regional disparity, examine the robustness of existing theories in the Chinese context, and provide policy-makers with evidence-based recommendations on popular support for social policy reforms.

Promoting Health Literacy of Student Teacher: A Feasibility Study
This project aims to transfer the health knowledge to primary and secondary students in Hong Kong and promote their health literacy; develop and validate a health literacy assessment tool specific for Hong Kong students; and test for feasibility before full implementation to students in primary and secondary school sectors. Through this, we hope students can acquire appropriate health information and knowledge and use the knowledge to enhance their health conditions. It is anticipated that the full implementation of this KT project can raise the overall health literacy of school children in the community by large.

The Chinese Healthcare Reform in Provincial Perspective: A Comparative Study of Fujian and Shanxi
This project aims to investigate China’s ongoing national health care reforms from a provincial and comparative perspective by examining the cases of Fujian and Shanxi. It intends to contribute to the study of health policy and economics with deeper understanding on the difficulty of implementing health care reforms in a highly decentralised system with huge regional variation, and the actual role played by the provinces in implementing reforms. It will also shed fresh light on the literature of China studies and public administration by substantiating how the provinces as intermediary sub-national governments translate central reform directives and manage local initiatives, depending on their varying fiscal and administrative capacities. The research findings and implications generated will facilitate evidence-based policy learning in China’s ongoing national health care reform.

A Case Study of Health Policy Reforms in Fujian Province
This project approaches China’s ongoing national healthcare reform from a provincial perspective. It takes Fujian Province as a case in examining the progress, dynamics and performance of health policy initiatives at the local level. This project does not only intend to draw meaningful empirical findings, but also attempts to provide alternative narratives of health system evolvement and institutional changes. In addition, a series of experiences and lessons valuable to facilitating policy learning of the ongoing national healthcare reforms will be drawn out from the study.
