This presentation reports the preliminary findings of the qualitative part of a study that examines the complexity of the relationship between governance matters and the institutional and cultural settings in the higher education systems of three Chinese societies – Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. This qualitative research sought to explain the coordination mechanism in university governance through an analysis of data generated from 53 interviews. Evidences collected from the interviews were used to reveal the interactions and relationships amongst the various actors on governance matters and to construct a taxonomy of institutional balance of power in the higher education systems of three Chinese societies. This presentation will conclude with future research directions, which take account of cultural issues and their connection with institutional arrangements, thereby illustrating the complex relationships between institutional forms and cultural features of higher education governance in the three societies.
