Abstract
China is generally regarded as a country that has successfully achieved rapid economic development and rapid urbanization over the last three decades. But, in the course of this process, spatial inequalities in the country and the rural-urban divide within the city increase. That has led to the consolidation of the country’s dual economic structure. In 2003, the Chinese government implemented the Coordinated Urban and Rural Development Programs in various cities dedicated to reducing urban-rural disparities and to break the dual economic structure. This thesis discusses two programs, one in Chengdu and one in Shanghai, and to analyze the extent to which they have met their goals.
