  • Combating corruption in Botswana: lessons for policy makers
    • First page: 213
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose The paper assesses the success and challenges of the government of Botswana in combating corruption, and the lessons that policy maker may draw from this experience. Design/methodology/approach A range of sources are used including on-line materials from Botswana government websites, DCEC annual reports, reports and on line materials of international organizations, press articles, conference papers, two theses, articles in journals and chapters in edited collections. Findings The paper considers the factors that contribute to the success of the Botswana government in combating corruption. It finds that the role of the anti-corruption body, the Directorate of Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC) has been crucial in this endeavor, including its investigative and enforcement work, and also its prevention and education programmes. The progress in combating corruption can also be attributed to procurement reform, measures to reduce red tape and bureaucratic procedures affecting businesses, competition regulation to reduce collusion and bribery, political and parliamentary accountability, and not least political will of Botswana’s leaders to stamp out corruption. In addition, challenges facing the anti-corruption programme are considered, including capacity constraints in the DCEC and the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, and the failure of the courts in some cases to bring to book those in high places who have allegedly committed corruption offences. The paper identifies a number of lessons that can be drawn from Botswana’s experience. In conclusion, the paper points to the need for political will to be sustained in light of evidence that it may have recently weakened. Practical implications The paper provides lessons for policy makers in tackling corruption. Originality/value The paper is a further contribution to the existing scholarly literature on the anti-corruption programme in Botswana.

  • The challenge of preserving Hong Kong's successful anti-corruption system
    • First page: 227
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this article is to examine factors explaining the success of Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) and the challenges which it faces in maintaining that success. Design/methodology/approach Utilising a review of primary and secondary sources, a syndrome of success characteristics is developed and analysed against a backdrop of recent high-level scandals involving corruption and unethical behaviour. Findings The article concludes that the institutionalisation of key structures and processes has enabled the ICAC to perform successfully to date but that the prospect of political interference may represent a significant future challenge Originality/value Although there has been widespread attention to ICAC success factors, some important features have been neglected and little academic attention has been devoted to recent political challenges to its position

  • Success in combating corruption in New Zealand
    • First page: 238
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose New Zealand has had success in combating corruption. It has been ranked consistently as one of the five least corrupt countries in the world. The purpose of this paper is to shed light on this accomplishment. Design/methodology/approach An analysis of the policies, socio-cultural attributes and historical and geographical elements that have contributed to New Zealand’s success in combating corruption. Findings New Zealand’s long-term geographical isolation, egalitarian socio-economic and cultural traditions, its close legal and cultural affinity with Britain, and its unique regulatory civil service largely explain its success in combating corruption. Nevertheless, global influences, the absence of a single anti-corruption agency, and changing values may be eroding New Zealand’s record of success. Originality/value This paper will be useful to policy-makers and those concerned with New Zealand’s recent decline in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index.

  • Combating corruption in Rwanda: lessons for policy makers
    • First page: 249
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose This paper evaluates the Rwandan government’s anti-corruption strategy and identifies lessons for policymakers in other countries. Design/methodology/approach This paper relies on materials obtained from the Rwandan government, from websites, research reports, press articles and publications as well as interviews with scholars, with Rwandan government officials, and the staff of non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Findings The Rwandan government formulates and implements its anti-corruption efforts via donors’ governance support and homegrown initiatives. Corruption has been minimized by eradicating opportunities for misconduct and by focusing on governance reforms and maintaining a zero-tolerance policy against corruption. Political will and strong leadership, the active role played by the anti-corruption agency, and effective governance reform have made Rwanda’s anti-corruption activities successful. Originality/value This paper is a scholarly examination of the Rwandan government’s anti-corruption strategy.

  • Singapore's success in combating corruption: lessons for policy makers
    • First page: 263
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explain Singapore’s success in combating corruption and to identify the lessons for policy makers concerned with enhancing the anti-corruption measures in their countries. Design/methodology/approach The paper provides a brief literature review and analysis of Singapore’s policy context before explaining Singapore’s success in combating corruption and identifying the lessons for policy makers to enhance the effectiveness of the anti-corruption measures in their countries. Findings Singapore’s success in combating corruption can be attributed to the political will of the People’s Action Party government and the effectiveness of the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau in investigating all corruption cases and enforcing the anti-corruption laws impartially, without fear or favour. Extrapolating from Singapore’s success, policy makers in other countries can learn these lessons: the critical importance of political will; addressing the causes of corruption and learning from past mistakes; establishing and supporting an independent anti-corruption agency with adequate resources; enforcing the anti-corruption laws impartially but not selectively against the government’s political opponents; and combating corruption is a marathon requiring perseverance and sustained effort. Originality/value Scholars, policy makers and anti-corruption practitioners will be interested in learning how Singapore has succeeded in combating corruption as well as the relevant lessons for policy makers.

  • Five success stories in combating corruption: lessons for policy makers
    • First page: 275
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose This paper explains why Botswana, Hong Kong SAR, New Zealand, Rwanda and Singapore have succeeded in combating corruption and identifies the lessons for policy makers in other countries. Design/methodology/approach The five countries are compared to identify the reasons for their success in combating corruption and the lessons that can be learnt by policy makers elsewhere. Findings Political will of the five governments is critical because combating corruption effectively requires them to provide the anti-corruption agencies (ACAs) with the necessary powers, budget, personnel and independence to enforce the anti-corruption laws impartially. New Zealand has succeeded in curbing corruption without an ACA because it relies on other institutions to maintain its good governance. Singapore’s rejection of the ineffective British colonial government’s method of using the police to curb corruption and its reliance on a single ACA was emulated by Hong Kong, Botswana and Rwanda. However, having a single ACA does not guarantee success unless it has the powers, budget, personnel and independence to perform its functions impartially as a watchdog instead of an attack dog against the government’s political opponents. As combating corruption remains a work in progress in the five countries, their policy makers must sustain their effective ACAs to meet the rising threat of private sector corruption. Originality/value The paper will be useful to scholars and policy makers concerned with improving the effectiveness of anti-corruption measures in those countries where corruption is rampant.

  • Studying where the jobs are: Mainland Chinese students in Hong Kong
    • First page: 290
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 3, July 2017.
      Purpose Mainland students are a major source of international student applications. Some countries have initiated policies to enable Mainland students to stay and work after graduation. Additions to the literature, particularly more country-specific studies, are much needed to cast light on the employment issues for such Mainland students overseas. This paper helps to fill this gap by focusing on Mainland students who have completed teacher education programmes in Hong Kong and then served as teachers in Hong Kong schools (Mainland teachers). The incentives that attracted them to stay and work in Hong Kong and the challenges they faced were examined. Their future plans were also probed. Design/methodology/approach The study adopted a mixed methodology. Data collection comprised of both a questionnaire survey and interviews. The semi-structured interviews provided opportunities for respondents to explain their answers, to narrate and widen the scope of data to areas hitherto unanticipated by the researchers. Findings Mainland teachers were attracted to stay on in Hong Kong to work for both intrinsic and extrinsic reasons. They were in fact settlers. They found the programmes they had taken to be practical and believed that they had acquired a niche situation in the teaching profession. Working and living in Hong Kong was satisfying, but some experienced social distance from local colleagues. Originality/value Our paper can be read with reference to countries that recruit Mainland students and there is a possibility that some of them may stay behind to work. It sheds light on the selection criteria of such students, on ways to enrich their programmes, as well as their employment, living, and social integration issues.

  • Ultra-low fertility, gender equity and policy considerations in East Asia
    • First page: 112
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose The paper focuses on the issue regarding why are fertility patterns in so many industrialized and post-industrialized societies declining and declining so rapidly in most newly industrialized countries especially in East Asia, and especially after countries have adopted the capitalist and market economy as the preferred approach to improve the lives of their population? Design/methodology/approach The paper tends to develop theoretical views based on sociological and economic theories for Asian contries. We discuss gender equity and the relationship between fertility and female labor force participation in the industrialized and post-industrialized countries, in the context of role incompatibility mainly for women, and the level of the strength and rigidity of family- and gender-role norms/attitudes that affect men's behavior as well as women's. Findings The existing family-related policies and programs which have reduced the role conflict and incompatibility experienced by working mothers are discussed under national orientations towards the resolution of work-family conflict since they could affect the relevance, acceptance, significance and effectiveness of policies being developed and approved to carry on under institutional context within a nation. Specific strategies and policy to reduce role incompatibility and childcare arrangements and its cost are discussed especially for East Asian nations. The paper concludes that gender equality is the major and primary perspective for such changes in fertility and social and economic policies are suggested. Originality/value The paper suggested potential policies based on the social and cultural aspects of the selected Asian nations and societies. It is more relevant for them to develop their policies.

  • Significance of family-friendly measures on fertility in Hong Kong
    • First page: 125
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose Hong Kong entered an ultra-low fertility regime nearly two decades ago (Census and Statistics Department, 2013). The causes of ultra-low fertility are the same as those in other developed economies (Tu and Lam, 2009). The phenomenon, in most western world and East Asian societies, is attributed to the incongruence between individual-oriented and family-oriented institutions (McDonald, 2000), or simply role incompatibility between work and motherhood (Stycos and Weller, 1967). One viable solution to alleviate role incompatibility is to introduce family–work reconciliation policies, including maternal and paternal leave, subsidized child care and healthcare, and work facilities that allow for breastfeeding (Lappegard, 2010). The current paper assesses the family-friendly measures for enhancing fertility. Design/methodology/approach The paper analyzes the current demographic conundrum and makes recommendations. Findings Subsidized child care is an effective measure if it satisfies the five main criteria, namely availability, accessibility, acceptability, cost, and quality, suggested by Rindfuss, Guzzo, and Morgan (2003). Other family-friendly measures are inadequate in absolute terms and inferior to those of Asian countries such as Japan, Singapore, and South Korea (Ministry of Manpower, 2014; OECD, 2013). The possibility of shifting away from the ultra-low fertility regime remains doubtful, especially because low fertility is a combined effect of an increasing prevalence of single older women (Census and Statistics Department, 2014), a shift of the utility function of children toward other consumable goods (Inglehart, 1982), and a desire for achieving upward intra-generational and intergenerational social mobility (Ariès, 1980). Practical implications Since Hong Kong still subsides in the regime of the lowest-low fertility, an evaluation of the related family-friendly measures will provide constructive insights to HKSAR government how to provide incentives to citizens to consider making childbearing decisions. Originality/value Because the introduction of family-friendly measures and gender ideologies are intractably linked, Hong Kong stays in the midst of nations of families and nations of individuals, influenced by Western ideas and traditional family values (Tu, 2013). It is hence worthwhile to examine the effectiveness of different family-friendly measures.

  • Acculturation and psychological well-being of immigrant brides in Taiwan
    • First page: 138
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose An imbalanced marriage market, since the early 1990s, has ushered in a great number of female immigrants mainly from China, and some ASEAN counties to Taiwan. The immigrant brides lose their original social networks and face difficulties acculturating, which in the long run may reap a toll on their psychological well-being. The aim of the research is to identify what the factors are and how they are associated with the symptoms of depression and anxiety among immigrant brides. Design/methodology/approach Due to the difficulty of identifying immigrant brides among the general population, the research relies on a convenience sample of 366 immigrant brides in eight cities or counties in Taiwan. The research team provided questionnaires in different languages including Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, English, Vietnamese, Thai, and Indonesian. Surveyed immigrant brides filled in questionnaires while participating in activities for Immigrant Day. Findings Hierarchical regression analyses show that perceived discrimination, and sociocultural barriers are the two greatest factors in depression and anxiety among immigrant brides. However, the effect of social support is not as clear as expected. Emotional social support from “the same ethnic group” is significant in reducing the symptoms of psychological depression of immigrant brides, but it cannot explain the variation in anxiety among immigrant brides. Originality/value Although the psychological well-being of immigrant brides in Taiwan is an important issue, little scholarly research has been published on this increasing segment of the population. The research can improve our understanding on the acculturation of immigrant brides in Taiwan. Meanwhile, the findings in the Taiwan-based research may provide some knowledge for South Korea and China, which generally share similar a culture with Taiwan and are also facing the issues of marriage market imbalance and the increase of immigrant brides, in developing prevention and intervention strategies and/or programs to enhance the psychological well-being of immigrant brides.

  • A unique pattern of one-child family migration in China - effects of
           personal features, family endowment and institutional elements
    • First page: 153
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose At the end of 1970s, the Chinses government enacted the one-child policy, now, the one-child successively enters into the labor market and reaches the age for marriage and childbirth. The floating population group interior also experiences the change of heterogeneity. This article, using Binary Logit Regression model, From three aspects of individual characteristics, family endowment and institutional factors, to analysis the reasons for the difference of family migration between one-child and non one-child were investigated. Design/methodology/approach Family migration or individual migration of the floating population is the dichotomous dependent variable and therefore the binomial logistic regression analysis model is selected. Findings It is found that the tendency of one-child family migration is significantly higher than that of non one-child. The main reason is that the one-child has obvious advantages in terms of individual characteristics, family endowment and institutional factors. Originality/value the previous researches on family migration: firstly, the previous researches mainly analyzed impact of the human capital and family income on the family migration from the perspective of economics and neglected the discussion on the family structure, life cycle etc family level factors and Hukou’s limitation; Secondly, most researches considered the migration as a whole. In fact, the migration population is no longer a highly homogeneous group and gradually become diversified.

  • Health and health care disparities among women in mainland China
    • First page: 166
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose Women’s health is granted as a big public health issue, impacting their personal well-being, family reproduction, and society’s development. Since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, major improvements in the status of women, as well as in health status, have been made. Despite the progress in women's health, far less has been achieved with respect to gender equality overall and women still face health disparities. This paper aims to providing a better understanding of health and health care disparities among women and their determinants nowadays in China. Design/methodology/approach This paper used the Statistical Yearbook of Health and Family Planning 2014, data of Women’s Social Status Survey conducted in 2010, and 6th census data by National Bureau of Statistics in 2010 to give an overall description of disparity in health care and health outcome faced by female population. Findings Progress in health is not equally shared by female population, differentials in women's health by region and urban/rural areas are considerable. The existing health disparities are still faced by women in terms of life expectancy, hazardous working environment, and health care services. As to gender difference of the 60+ elders, men have better health status compared to women. Also women are more financially dependent on other family members for main source of daily living, reflecting their economic disadvantagement. Originality/value This study gives a comprehensive and latest overview of trends of women’s health progress, disparities in health care and health outcomes both in female population and between genders by using three data sources.

  • Patterns of living arrangements of elderly people in mainland China:
           changes, consequences and policy implications
    • First page: 179
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose The main purpose of this paper is to examine the changes and consequences of the patterns of the Chinese elderly’s living arrangements. Thus getting preparations for policy making of the future elderly and having a better understanding of the social transition in China. Design/methodology/approach Based on the analysis of the population census data in 2000 and 2010, we examined the changes and trends of living arrangements of Chinese elderly. Furthermore, we analyzed factors influencing the Chinese elderly’s living arrangements by the data of Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS). Findings Firstly, the proportion of the elderly people living with children was decreasing. Secondly, proportions of the “living alone” and “living with spouse independently” elderly people largely increased. Thirdly, the changes and trends showed differences between urban and rural regions. Originality/value By looking at the characters among the elderly people of different living arrangement patterns, the “living alone” elderly people are typically in disadvantaged conditions, thus it calls for special attentions to related researches and policies on the “living alone” elderly people.

  • Living arrangements, coresidence preference, and mortality risk among
           older Taiwanese
    • First page: 192
      Abstract: Asian Education and Development Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2, April 2017.
      Purpose Although coresidence with children when one becomes old is an ideal in Chinese society, the drastic socio-economic development in Taiwan has brought some fundamental changes to living arrangements of the elderly population. This paper examines the relationship between family living arrangements and elderly health in Taiwan, given the secular trend of more elderly persons choosing to live with their spouse or to live independently. Design/methodology/approach We utilized panel data from the “1989 Survey of Health and Living Status of the Elderly in Taiwan” with follow-ups up to 2007 to examine how living arrangements of the elderly affect the risk of mortality using discrete-time hazard models. We stratified the analyses by the elderly’s preference to coreside with children, and examined whether the effects of living arrangement varied by age, controlling for sociodemographics, health status, health behaviors, and social relationships observed at the baseline. Findings We found that both the associations of living arrangements and coresidence preference with that mortality risk were largely weakened when controlling for other variables. Only among respondents expressing preference for coresidence were living arrangements associated with mortality risks, and these effects increased with age. For those who did not intend to live with children, we found no evidence suggesting living arrangements were associated with mortality risks. The dynamics of living arrangements among the elderly and elderly care policies in Taiwan are discussed for further research. Originality/value To our knowledge, no previous research has examined living arrangements and mortality risks with respect to coresidence preference.
