    Faculty Associates at the Center for Emerging Markets conduct high-quality research that helps company managers and government officials make better decisions and help shape how other scholars undertake their own research. 

    Novel insights on emerging markets appear in Research Books in which a topic is analyzed in detail, and in Research Articles in which an idea is studied in depth.

    The Center facilitates the creation of high-impact research by providing scholars financial support in the form of BIE Research Grants and by facilitating Faculty Exchanges that promote interactions with scholars interested in emerging markets from other academic institutions.

    The insights gained are disseminated and distilled in Research Conferences in which leading minds in the field of emerging markets get together to debate and learn.

    Margaret Woo

    woo pic3Margaret Woo, Professor of Law, has published widely on China's Legal Reforms. Her most recent book, Chinese Justice: Civil Dispute Resolution in Contemporary China, analyzes whether China’s thirty years of legal reform have taken root in Chinese society by examining how ordinary citizens are using the legal system in contemporary China. It is an interdisciplinary look at law in action and at legal institutions from the bottom up – that is, beginning with those at the ground level who are using and working in the legal system.
