Chinese Social Policy Workshop

The Social Policy Research Centre at UNSW organises the bi-annual Australian Social Policy Conference in Sydney.

This year it will be held 25–27 September and include a special workshop on Chinese Social Policy.

The 2017 Chinese Social Policy Workshop 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 Workshop 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 workshop. The workshop will strengthen networks of academics, postgraduate students and officials, and support discussion of research findings and their implications for policy development.
