Description of research work

My doctoral research is intended to explore the explanatory factors of China's IP system, the achieved improvements and existing problems, with focus on those in Sino-EU relations. The study has special emphasis on domestic sources which are subject to the influence of such international factors as globalisation, WTO and WIPO, and EU-China Dialogue on IPR.
