Professor
Linda Li stresses the role of collaboration as well as conflict in understanding politics and public policy. A specialist in intergovernmental relations and Chinese government reforms, her award-winning piece published in Political Studies back in 1997 advocates an alternative analytical framework to enable observers to take note, and work towards, the occurrence of collaboration and compromise, amidst a general context of mutual distrust and conflict. Trained in political science and sociology, her works have straddled the politics of central-local relations in China, government reforms, rural public finance, equity education, civil society coalitions, and cross-border relations to explore the dynamics of institutional and agency change processes. She was educated in Hong Kong schools before going to London where she earned a doctorate in political studies. She teaches political analysis theories and Chinese government and politics courses, and postgraduate research seminars. She is a regular commentator on Chinese and Hong Kong politics and public policy in the Hong Kong and international media.

She served as Associate Provost (Strategic Planning) of the University from September 2013 to September 2016.
