Organizational Structure of the Anti-Falungong Campaign
This chapter analyzes how the regime organized its operations against the Falungong, and, in particular, which set of institutions in the party and state systems the regime relied on to formulate policies and which to implement them. It begins with an analysis of three sets of institutional choices at the system level: whether the regime would rely on existing formal institutions or ad hoc arrangements to deal with the problem, which set of party and state agencies would be entrusted with which set of tasks, and the mode and extent of top-party leadership involvement. This is followed by an investigation of the organization of the structure and function of anti-Falungong operations at each administrative level, from the central through the provincial, municipal, and county down to the township and basic-unit levels. The investigations are not only guided by the need to describe institutional arrangements, but are also informed by the degree of variations in organizational structure and institutional nomenclature at each administrative level.
