With the deepening of economic and social development, rural community governance has become the focus of attention of many scholars at home and abroad as a new way of governance, and community-based governance emphasizes the synergy of multiple subjects and the aggregation of interests. Compared with urban community governance, rural community governance is more complex, characterized by plurality, mobility and heterogeneity. Moreover, due to the late communization of rural areas in China, community governance is still in the initial exploration stage, and the interests of various subjects are intertwined and complicated, which are difficult to be solved at once, so the existing theories and experiences of rural community governance are still in the practical verification stage. In the context of the current national strategy of rural revitalization, the study of rural community governance innovation becomes more urgent. In this paper, through combing relevant domestic and foreign works and related literature, we clarify the inner logical line of rural community governance research, lay a solid theoretical foundation for promoting deeper research on rural community governance in China in the new era, and develop a new vision of rural community governance.
