This trip is organized by the Peking University – Lincoln Institute Center for Urban Development and Land Policy (PKU-Lincoln Center). It will explore the property right arrangements of the informal housing sector in Beijing. The trip comprises a half-day site visit to Zheng Ge Zhuang in Chang Ping, which is referred by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Land and Resources as an “incomplete property right housing complex”. After the site visit, a meeting will be held in the PKU-Lincoln Center to discuss property rights related issues in China and research collaborations. Details of the one-day trip are as follows:
