Abstract: It is necessary to mobilize the enthusiasm of local governments and officials to governance the severe environment pollution problems under the jurisdictional management system. For this purpose, the Ministry of Environmental Protection adopted the administrative interviews system to the mainly responsible of local government in order to urge local government to strengthen environmental protection. In this paper, the effects of administrative interviews on air pollution governance are evaluated using regression discontinuity method. The empirical results show that there is a significant governance effect of air pollution if the administrative interview was due to air pollution, but there is no impact on air pollution otherwise. Analysis on individual pollutants finds that the effects of administrative interviews are mainly reflected on PM2.5 and PM10, while there is no significant effect on other air pollutants, which is consistent with the current air pollution assessment indicators focused on PM2.5 and PM10. That is to say, local governments show a “stop-gap” feature in response to administrative interviews. In addition, the empirical results also find that administrative interviews just have very short-term effect on air pollution governance, the air pollution back to normal level shortly after the interviews.
