This quarter geography professor Kam Wing Chan is in China, touring the country and giving a number of talks on urbanization and the hukou (household registration) system. As a result of one of these talks, Dr. Chan has recently been interviewed by several important media sources in both China and the US. You can find Dr. Chan’s thoughts on China’s Third Plenum (a critical meeting of Chinese officials which many hoped would bring large economic reform to the country) in the Chinese newspaper Ming Pao and on the People’s Daily website, or take a look at Bloomberg for his views on what the Third Plenum might mean for China’s urbanization. For more on his research in general, check out his faculty webpage. We look forward to hearing more about Dr. Chan’s travels, and his influential work!
