The Evolution and Its Mechanism of Linkage between Urban-construction-land Taking and Ruralconstruction-land Giving(LUTRG) Institution——An Analysis based on Institution Change Theory
HUANG Jindong;Fujian Provincial Department of Land and Resources;
LUTRG is an important institution to protect cultivated land and optimize the spatial layout of construction land. It has been more than ten years since LUTRG institution began to pilot, so it is of great signi?cance to explore the evolution process and mechanism. Through analyzing of?cial documents, this paper divides the evolution of LUTRG institution into four stages: originating, initial piloting, formal introduction and adjustment and improvement. In these four stages, LUTRG institution has undergone two major changes. The ?rst change is that LUTRG institution derives from Cultivated Land Requisition-compensation Balance institution, and the second change is that the transition of surplus index of LUTRG is approved in some poor areas. This paper analyzes the mechanism of the two institutional changes by using Institution Change Theory. It is concluded the second institutional change has not yet formed a new institutional equilibrium. Exploring the transaction of surplus index of LUTRG in a larger scope is the key to form a new institutional equilibrium.
