Abstract:This paper engages in analysis of performance of governance of SRB based on the three themes of neo-institutionalism analysis of performance and constructs a neo-institutional analysis framework for the study of the performance of SRB at three levels, the micro level of individuals, the meso level of structures and the macro level of systemic environment. To confirm the feasibility of the framework, we use the Shenmu County, Shaanxi province, as a case study and find that the performance of the SRB is the outcome of the combined effect of individual psychological mechanism, government-based system structure and the overall systemic environment, suggesting that this framework has potential to be an effective tool.
