This module will introduce students to interdisciplinary work (in anthropology, sociology, geography, political science and law) on environmental change in reform-era China, with focus on air, water and soil pollution. Students will become familiar with the theory and practice of environmental governance in China, with particular reference to the impact of the relationship between the central and the local state on the implementation of environmental protection policies, and to the role non-state actors play in this policy field.
