Workshop on Law, Governance and Development: The Transformation of Property Rights in Land and Property Law in China
The Centre of East Asian Law with the support of the Center for Chinese Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies will hold a workshop on The Transformation of Property Rights in Land and Property Law in China.
Date & Time: 11 May, 2012; 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Venue: Centre of East Asian Law, School of Oriental and African Studies, London, UK
Since 1978, China has seen a 'revival' of property rights. The decollectivisation of rural communes, the 'corporatisation' of state-owned enterprises (SOEs), and the emergence of urban property markets have been hindered or encouraged by legal reforms. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the nature and significance of the re-emergence of private property in land and the legal framework concerning landed property in the context of rapid socio-economic change in post-Mao China from a variety of perspectives whilst retaining a focus on law. The workshop's broader aim is to contribute to the understanding of the changing nature of contemporary China through an examination of private property.
