This course aims to understand and analyze the political and economic institutions of the People’s Republic of China and their evolutions since the late 1970s. Throughout the course students will critically examine various aspects of China’s institution and reform, including the bureaucratic management, intergovernmental relations, marketization and privatization reforms, legislative and legal developments, possibility and difficulty of democratization, rise and control of corruption, and state-society relations. Students are expected to come out from the course with a deep understanding of the causes, consequences, constraints, and contradictions of the major changes that have taken place in China in the last three decades.
