The hallmark of ‘sustainability’ has spread like wildfires across various disciplines. Several broadly accepted theories suggest that institutional sustainability is closely related to an institution’s internal processes of intrinsic and instrumental rationalisations.

Yet, as of today the relevance of an institution’s external factors such as public discourse – construed as a stimulating or limiting factor – to institutional sustainability has not been explained in full. This paper proposes an interdisciplinary framework for analysing mass actions and their resolutions in post-reform China (1980s to mid-2010s) where various archetypes of governanceand legitimacy co-exist, compete and converge.

To this end, this paper focuses on the government petition system, the functioning of which exemplifies the discrepancy between institutionalpractices and public discourse. The paper first identifies major institutional challenges facing thecurrent government petition system. Thereafter it contextualises these challenges in the news domain that is supposedly representative of popular discourse in contemporary China. It concludes with suggestions for future policy and research development concerning the topic.
