China Policy Options in a Post Crisis World : Young China Scholars Network - Phase II

This project builds on an earlier phase, Poverty and Inequality Research Network for China (103310). It is motivated by ongoing debate in China concerning the global economic crisis. The grant will enable young scholars to contribute to the debate by undertaking new research on the impact of the financial crisis and post-crisis policy in five areas: trade and investment; financial structure and macroeconomic policy; inequality, poverty and the social dimensions of the crisis and post-crisis policy; rural economic development; and tax policy. It will also endeavor to engage the researchers in dialogue with senior policymakers, international organizations, other relevant stakeholders and the media, thereby contributing to informed policy debate.
