International Conference of China's Environmental Governance

International Conference of China's Environmental Governance (June 2-3, Beijing, China)


China’s environment has drawn great concerns in recent decades as the country rapidly catches up in industrialization and modernization. This booming economy, however, has come alongside with an environmental crisis, which affects not only the livelihood of the Chinese citizens and the survival of the regime, but also the relationship between China and the rest of the world. In the past decades, Chinese government has been striking to address the issue through various channels, but the outcomes have not yet been fully assessed and understood.

This conference aims to draw the best experts in this field in order to stimulate the discussion and improve our understanding of the issue for better research and policy decisions in the future. Scholars and practitioners across disciplines are invited to submit papers and panels following the themes listed below:
