This program discusses the evolving behavior of social organizations in China, and its theoretical/practical implications for state-society relations. How do NGOs see themselves? How do individual citizens view the social organizations and their relations with the state? What are the prospects for civil society in China? What about specific type of social organizations such as religious organizations? This panel will present the results from their recent field work from several large Chinese cities as well as dozens of local villages.

This event is co-organized by BU Center for the Study of Asia and Harvard-MIT-BU Chinese Politics Research Workshop. Feel free to contact sty@bu.edu if you have any questions.
