The People’s Republic of China has shown the world that spectacular accomplishments in reducing poverty and achieving sustained economic growth are possible. The methods have been pragmatic and experimental.

China is also quietly innovating in practices of governance, such as transparency, participation, and meritocracy. This conference explores the changing institutions, policies, practices, and governance structures that have been used in the reform era since 1978.
