Meng Ye has been a research assistant and junior lecturer at the Chair of Greater China Studies since April 2016. She studied political science and Chinese studies at the University of Tübingen and at the National Taiwan University. In her M.A. thesis, she examined the ongoing anti-corruption campaign in the People's Republic of China from the perspective of policy analysis and political steering theory. Her PhD project focuses on domestic discourse and local implementation of current legal reform and its effect on the authoritarian resilience of China's party-state. Her research also focuses on other current reform projects in the PRC, politico-economic transitions in contemporary China as well as the Chinese discourse on legitimacy and the CCP's legitimation strategies.
