The China program now has a bigger presence on the Lincoln Institute’s website. The new section’s homepage provides basic information on the program, which is part of International Studies, and explores issues and challenges related to land and taxation policy in China, with a focus on the nation’s rapid urbanization, sustainability, property taxation, and public finance.
The improvements also provide users with easier access to the website of the Peking University-Lincoln Institute Center for Urban Development and Land Policy, a partnership in Beijing that recently celebrated its 5th year in operation. An additional feature is speedy access to books, working papers, and other publications related to China, through the new publications navigation. Complete contact information for the China program based in Beijing is also provided.
Zhi Liu, formerly of the World Bank, was named director of the China program in September, succeeding Joyce Man, who is returning to her position at Indiana University. Man will stay on as a visiting fellow at the Lincoln Institute.
