The People's Republic of China (PRC) suffers greatly from problems of air pollution that also have global implications. This Article examines the PRC's efforts in recent years to address the question of air quality legislatively. It uses a detailed analysis of the process through which China has developed national air pollution law to assess the impact of institutional design on such efforts and to consider Chinese legal development more generally.
