Chinese Social Policy

For over 10 years, our researchers have worked collaboratively with the Chinese government, local authorities and communities, researchers, not-for-profits, civil society, and other key organisations to conduct research that informs the development of effective evidence-based social policy.

This research has had a direct influence on almost all major reforms to China’s child protection policy over the past decade, including the introduction of a national orphans’ allowance and foster care guidelines. It is estimated that over 750,000 children have directly benefited from these policy changes to date, with millions more children benefiting indirectly.
