Governing China's Multiethnic Frontiers in the Twenty-first Century

    Project Details

    Description

    This project investigates the recent wave of violence in China's western borderlands and the reasons why some areas have become more violent than others. Using case studies from Tibetan regions, it examines the role of newly empowered local governments in conflict management and how local government behaviour shapes local conflict dynamics. By focusing on local governance, this research will bring a new perspective to our understanding of China's ethnic politics. Research findings will advance scholarship on contemporary Chinese politics and society and contribute to the comparative politics literature on the causes, management and resolution of ethnic conflicts in multi-ethnic states.
