After a period of fast economic growth, China has now entered a stage of slow growth while seeing the continuing momentum of urbanization and profound urban transformation. In addition to longstanding research topics on various aspects of the production of the built environment (such as housing provision, regional development etc.), there is a growing focus on the social challenges of urbanisation and the governance of Chinese cities. In light of the ongoing debate about the limits of universalist theorisations of the urban and the need to engage with the globalisation of urban processes, research on urban China also has implications for the wider academic community and helps the reinterpretation of existing theories.
Four members of MEDIUM will present papers at the conference:
The conference is organised by Bartlett School of Planning, University College London and co-organised by College of Urban and Environmental Sciences, Peking University-Lincoln Institute Center for Urban Development and Land Policy, Peking University
