About the Conference
Everyone needs care and most will provide care at some time in their lives. Due to modernization and demographic shifts, China simultaneously faces a high demand for care and a shortage of caregivers. Which population groups are in particular need of care? Who is providing that care? And what will be the care needs and opportunities during the coming decades in China?
To answer these questions, the China Center for Social Policy will host an all-day conference, Caring for All: Challenges and Opportunities in China and Beyond. Presentations will examine different aspects of care drawing from empirical (qualitative or quantitative) data.
Participants will cover the range of services that come under the rubric of “caring for all,” from family care to social services to care policies at the national level and their international comparisons.
