How Macro-Institutional Contexts Constrain Environmental Governance: Comparing the United States and China
Professor Tang will examine how marco-institutional contexts constrain options for environmental governance by drawing on his research on the US and Chinese environmental management systems. Using examples in water resource management and air pollution control from both countries, he will explore how fundamental differences in the two governing systems affect their respective approaches to addressing environmental problems. The relative strengths and weaknesses of the two systems will also be examined.
