Chinese Social Policy Stream

The 2019 Chinese Social Policy Stream will present recent research on developments in Chinese social policy. Its aim is to increase the capacity of Chinese and Australian researchers to collaborate in areas of joint policy research interest by building on their record of cooperative social policy research relations.

The stream will discuss broad topics regarding social policies in China, including:

  • urbanisation and migration
  • governance and community development
  • social integration
  • social policy and innovation
  • poverty
  • social security
  • ageing
  • disability
  • child welfare and protection

All presentations will be in English. 

Chinese, Australian and other international researchers and government and non-government officials engaged in current research in China or with an interest in developing that research agenda are welcome to present or attend the stream. The stream will strengthen networks of academics, postgraduate students and officials, and support discussion of research findings and their implications for policy development.

On Tuesday 10 September, SPRC will host a light dinner for delegates from the Chinese social policy stream. Please join us at 6pm in rooms 221 and 223 John Goodsell Building (next to Scientia).

Presenters in the Chinese social policy stream are invited to submit a paper to a special issue of the China Economic Review. For more information, please see the Call for Papers on the journal website
