Symposium on Chinese Society and Policy

The Transition of Marriage and Family in China

Since the reform and opening-up, China's economy has boomed along with social progress, achievements which have drawn the world's attention. However, the transformation of the economy and social structure has created all kinds of conflicts and problems. Since 2013, the Chinese government has repeatedly stressed the will to eradicate poverty, to improve people's livelihood, and to gradually achieve common prosperity. This involves the implementation of related policies to promote social development. China's decision-making policy is a collaborative effort among government, academia, think tanks, and the target group, in which academics and think tanks play an irreplaceable essential role.

To promote relevant academic exchanges and policy researches, the Universities Service Centre for China Studies of the Chinese University of Hong Kong will hold a series of seminars on Chinese Society and Policy. The theme of the second meeting is "The Transition of Marriage and Family in China", which will be held on 20th October 2017. We invite experts and scholars from various fields to discuss the current situation and future of Chinese society.

中国社会问题与政策研究系列研讨会

中国婚姻与家庭的变迁

改革开放以来,中国经济发展,社会进步,成绩令世人瞩目。但是,伴随着经济体制转轨和社会结构转型,各类矛盾和问题也接踵而至。2013年以来中国政府多次强调消除贫困、改善民生、逐步实现共同富裕,这涉及与社会发展相关的各种政策的制定和推行。中国的政策决策是一个政府、学界、智库、目标人群广泛参与协商的过程,而学界和智库在其中发挥着不可替代的重要作用。

为推动相关的学术交流和政策研究,香港中文大学中国研究服务中心将举办中国社会问题与政策研究系列研讨会第二次会议的主题为中国婚姻与家庭的变迁,将于20171020日召开。我们邀请各界专家学者共聚一堂,集思广益,共同探讨中国社会的现状及未来。
