Governance Reform, Social Inequality and the Changing Public Opinion in China

Dr Zhenqing Zheng (Tsinghua University, Beijing)

Since China’s reforms in the 1980’s, bureaucratic changes and market forces have reshapened the general public’s lives and opinions. This seminar examines to what degree, social differences in urban-rural divide, social stratification, distributive fairness perceptions, generational gap and so on have impacted people’s attitudes regarding governance reform and performance in China.

10 June 2019, Paul Webley Wing (Senate House), Wolfson Lecture Theatre (SWLT), 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
