Government purchased social services from nongovernment organisations (NGO) is one of the significant social policy changes in China this decade. This move away from state provided services is relevant to Australian social policy in two ways – for Australian organisations wishing to become active in China through the Free Trade Agreement; and to learn from alternative ways of managing government purchasing through the different trajectory taken in the Chinese policy context.
The interactive workshop brings together joint expertise from two projects about the politics of service contracting to NGOs in China and building China’s welfare state through government purchased services for children. The projects are funded by the ESRC (Economic & Social Research Council UK) and ARC (Australia Research Council).
Speakers are from the project research teams, UNSW China experts and Australian NGO contracting policy and practitioners – including London School of Economics Jude Howell, Regina Enjuto-Martinez and Yuanyuan Qu; UNSW Xiaoyuan Shang, Karen Fisher, Natasha Cortis, Bingqin Li and Sarah Cook; Beijing Normal University Jie Yu; and Jennifer Mason, former NSW government.
