Written for the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Frank Pieke of Oxford University has written this working paper relating to the controversial issue of Chinese land use. Divided into two parts, the document analyses the policy development on national land use since the first Land Law in 1986. Peike then utilises fieldwork data in the Taicang municipality to draw wider conclusions on whether the new role of land has aided economic development policies at the lower levels of government organisation. He concludes that such uniform land use policies are still too restrictive and ineffective for a country of China's rapid economic expansion and urbanisation. Available in PDF only.
