    China is the origin sate for 40 of Asia’s 57 trans-boundary watercourses. From the Amur River in the north to the Yarlung or Brahmaputra River in the south-west, the country’s water management policy affects the lives of billion of people beyond its borders. Dr Lee has studied the politics around the use of trans-boundary Rivers in Europe and in China, as well as municipal water policy in China’s financial capital, Shanghai. Most recently he has completed a study on how China and North Korea share water in the Yalu river, even as both sides construct hydro-electric damns along its course. In the past he has studied China’s damn building activities on the Mekong.
