UN Team to present at workshop for "Social Policy & Development: China in Comparative Perspective" in Beijing, China.

14 Nov 2008



UNRISD Director, Thandika Mkandawire, and UNRISD Research Coordinator, Katja Hujo, are to take part in a workshop jointly organized by UNRISD, DFID (Department for International Development, United Kingdom) and IPRCC (International Poverty Reduction Center China) on 17 and 18 November 2008 in Beijing, China.

The focus of the workshop will be on comparing social policy experiences. Thandika will share his findings related to the UNRISD project ”Social Policy in a Development Context”, while Katja will speak about her work on ”Financing Social Policy”, as part of the results of UNRISD’s global research project on Social Policy and Development. Moreover, researchers from prestigious Chinese think tanks as well as representatives from international organizations will share their extensive experience of social policy in China.

2008 marks the 30th anniversary of the start of the reforms in China, the world’s leading champion in economic development in terms of growth rates and structural transformation. Since 1978 the reforms helped to lift more than half a billion people out of poverty.

UNRISD has conducted a range of research projects related to social policy in a development context including comparative regional studies on Latin America, the Middle East, East Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Nordic countries, and thematically-focused research on gender, financing, migration, and health care.
