Welcoming three visiting fellows at the Hertie School of Governance

The Dahrendorf Working Group ‘Europe and China’ is welcoming three visiting fellows at the Hertie School this fall. They are conducting research ranging from technology and industrial policy, to environment governance and will be embarking on collaborative projects during their stay.

Alanna Krolikowski’s research stay with the Dahrendorf Forum at the Hertie School has just been completed and we wish her all the best for her next projects. Her research at the Hertie School focused on technology, innovation, and industrial policy in China, with a focus on aerospace and information technology.  Her work relies on extensive interviews and primary materials collected in China.  Recent outputs of this research include a briefing note on China’s defense industries for France’s IRSEM series, an article on lunar policy in Space Policy, and a working book manuscript on China’s trade and investment in the aircraft- and spacecraft-manufacturing sectors.

Kyoung Shin has just commenced his research stay at the Hertie School. Kyoung is currently an associate professor in the School of Political Science and Public Administration at Wuhan University. During his fellowship at the Hertie School he will be working on his upcoming book project on changing architecture, patterns, and modalities of local environmental governance in China. Aside from participating in two conferences/workshops as a panelist and presenter, he is planning on initiating some collaborative projects with Genia Kostka and Xuehua Zhang (who is joining later in November).  They will be brainstorming ideas about such issues as citizen participation in pollution monitoring, environmental litigation, and continuous compliance in China.

Xuehua Zhang will be joining the Hertie School in November. Xuehua is Professor of Environmental Policy at the Institute of New Energy and Low Carbon Technology of Sichuan University. Her area of research is environmental policy-making, enforcement and compliance, coordinated pollution control, low carbon rural development, public participation and environmental legal institutions. During her stay she will be participating as a panelist in two events at the Hertie School and is looking forward to collaborating on projects with Genia Kostka and Kyoung Shing.
