On November 13, 2015, OIEP-sponsored graduate students enrolled in the University of Maryland (UMD)-Nanjing Normal University (NNU) joint Master's degree in Criminal Justice program presented their research findings to a panel of faculty led by Professor James Lynch, chair of UMD's Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice. 

Presentations addressed a variety of crime trends in contemporary China, including telecommunications fraud, drunk driving, offenses committed by migrant workers, juvenile involvement in pornography networks, online consumption scams, and violations of air pollution laws and regulations.

Following each presentation, Dr. Lynch offered detailed and incisive commentary.  Later, he praised the candidates for the high caliber of their academic research and thanked OIEP for managing the UMD-NNU joint program and markedly improving its quality in recent years.
