On March 14–15, 2017, a group of Asian and American scholars working in the areas of law, economics, and political science gathered at the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law. There they debated and discussed decentralization and development at a conference co-sponsored by New York University’s Classical Liberal Institute and the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law’s Centre for Chinese Law. What does decentralization mean? How do we best measure decentralization? Is interjurisdictional competition a race to the bottom or a race to the top? Is decentralization desirable in the context of China and other jurisdictions? This symposium contains papers presented at the conference, in which authors take various approaches to the relationship between decentralization and development.
