Michelson’s research on contemporary Chinese society focuses on social conflict, legal professions, and access to justice. In addition pursuing ongoing research on rural state-society relations and their recent changes in the wake of China's "harmonious society" policies, Michelson is also currently analyzing a sample of over one million court decisions from every court in a single province in an effort to improve our understanding of the behavior of Chinese courts and the people who use them.
