Abstract
In China, state owned enterprises used to responsible for building workers' houses and providing public services such as education and medical treatment for their employees. However, in recent years, the governance of worker community has been transformed from “unitary management” (managed by the enterprise), to "multi governance” (managed by the government, property company and residents’ organizations). State owned enterprises are not responsible for community management anymore. Instead, residents’ self-organization is seen as an important governance force. This research takes a traditional coal resource-based city as an example, through methods of data review, field survey and semi structured interview, analyzing the main types of residents' self-organization and the challenges during the autonomy process. Furthermore, this paper indicates that social capital and official supervision should be strengthen in autonomic practice. Key words: state owned enterprise; worker community; governance transformation; residents’ self-organization
