Recently, Dr. JIANG Yuhao’ research is on “experimental governance” and “critical legal studies” in the Chinese context. Charles Sabel finds some new developments from the practices of public governance in the Europe Union and the United States. For example, under the EU Water Framework Directive and its Common Implementation Strategy, member states are required to “encourage the active involvement of all interested parties” in its implementation, particularly in the “production, review, and updating of […] river basin management plans”. Then, the EU Commission reviews their plans and implementation, and promotes mutual learning among Member States. Sabel points out there is a new model of governance in the new developments that, which is called as “Experimentalism Governance”, is characterized as soft official managements in consultation with relevant civil society stakeholders. Dr. Jiang tries to observe China's practice from Sabel's perspective. Dr. Jiang has published  the translation of Sabel’s work about Experimentalism Governance.

Dr. JIANG Yuhao is also translating Harvard legal professor and contemporary thinker Roberto Mangabeira Unger’s works into Chinese.
