The Columbia China Center for Social Policy will host a fall 2020 lecture series on “Chinese Social Policy from Comparative Perspectives.” The lecture series is co-sponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute. All lectures will be held remotely via Zoom webinar.

The lecture series includes four lectures that explore Chinese social policy from international comparative perspectives. The first lecture draws from policy documents and media reports to examine gender discrimination in the workplace and places China in a global comparative perspective. The second lecture uses quantitative evidence to examine how public transfers impact inequality in China. The third lecture is a book talk on health policy and politics in China. The last lecture compares social safety nets and family income packages across China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.

The lecture series is free and open to the public. Please register at the respective event pages for each lecture.
