Brown Bag lecture: Governing China’s Urbanization

June 17, 2014 - 12:00-13:00

NIAS and ADI invite you to the first of a series of brown bag lectures on Asia.

Governing China’s Urbanization
Chunrong Liu, Fudan-European Centre for China Studies

Urbanization has been the new buzzword in China since the formation of new leadership in 2012. While it is widely regarded as a decisive driving force of economic growth, comprehensive national strategy to lift urbanization has also generated an array of sociopolitical problems. This talk will address two critical aspects of governing challenges associated with massive urbanization in China: land-based conflicts and citizenship issues, which raise important theoretical questions concerning regime resilience and adaptation. Policy and institutional responses to these challenges will also be discussed.

Time: 17 June, 12:00-13:00
Place: NIAS, room 18.1.08, CSS, University of Copenhagen, Øster Farimagsgade 5, 1353 Cph. K

Feel free to bring your own lunch. There will be coffee/tea.

Coming brown bag lectures:
