Modernity and Policy Toward the Urban Poor in China

Discussion on China's urban poor policy. 

When:
November 29, 2017 12:00pm to 1:45pm

In addressing the timely issue of China’s urban poor policy Dr. Solinger will pose the question: why are the poor in Chinese cities managed so much more meagerly, in relative terms, than other groups? Using statistical material, comparative information and quotations from interviews, she will make the case that it is the state’s obsession with forging stability that has had a negative impact on China’s municipally-situated needy. Chinese cities must now conform to the political elite’s vision of modernity, to what Dr. Solinger sees as its illusions of rejuvenation, regeneration, and renovation. She bases her claim on an appraisal of the state’s Minimum Livelihood Guarantee (Dibao).
