Economic transformation in both the US and China has created winners and losers in its respective society. While some regions are thriving, others have struggled. In this joint event organized by U-M Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies, US Heartland China Association, and U-M Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, we have invited the leading experts on shrinking cities to explore the lessons learned from the post-industrial shrinking cities in both the U.S. and China and how both countries are learning to help the communities that are left behind in the face of technology and global changes.
