In recent years economic reform in China has involved major changes to the organisation of and investment in housing urban areas. This project will provide a systematic account of housing system in China, and of the progress of changes in housing policy and provision. It will be focus principally on housing in urban areas, and on the development and implementation of the housing reform programme and its place in economic reform. In addition to providing an overview of the reform, the progress of the reform programme will be investigated through studies in four cities. The research will provide new information on reform in China, and through this will add to understanding of the place of housing in economic reform, and debates about the role of public and private sectors in different economic systems and about processes of modernisation and privatisation. The experience of China in these areas will be used to contribute to discussions of similar processes in former East European socialist states, in Britain and in other countries.
