Here’s my new article "Challenges to China’s Natural Resources Conservation & Biodiversity Legislation." The Abstract:

Despite China’s legislative attempts to conserve its natural resources and, in turn, protect biodiversity, Chinese law remains ineffective in pursuit of these goals due to struggles with implementation and enforcement, engendering legislation with economic values rather than ecological ones, and a lack of public participation. This Article provides an overview of Chinese biodiversity and conservation legislation and suggests that China can improve biodiversity legislation through increasing the public role in conservation efforts, increased liability and enforcement, and improved administration coordination.
