A propos de la publication

Over the past 50 years, Chinese higher agricultural education institutions have been producing highly qualified graduates for agricultural research, extension services and rural administration. However, they have encountered major challenges in the transition from a centralized plan economy to a market economy, to which they responded by initiating institutional reform in the 1990s. This book presents the results of an IIEP/FAO-funded case study on the reform of higher agricultural education institutions in China. The authors systematically describe the process of institutional reform, present the actors involved in the reform, and analyze the positive and negative experiences of certain pioneer universities. Recommendations for further reform are also made.
