Abstract [en]

Public participation is a requirement of urban and rural planning law in China, sotheoretically the public participation should go well in China, but the reality is just theopposite. I researched the barriers to conduct public participation in China. This paperfocuses on the study of how to strengthen public participation by analyzing thepossibilities to conduct public participation. The methods I used in this paper areliterature and law study as well as interviews. I found that the level of public participationin China is tokenism because of some negative factors such as unfair power distributionand public’s low participation enthusiasm. The public participation techniques should beadopted according to the types of the plans and levels of public participation. Planners arevery important to the success of public participation. In order to strengthen the publicparticipation, the government needs to improve the legislation system and socialenvironment.
