Grey Emperors: Long-term Global Consequences of the One-Child Policy, China's Most Radical Social Experiment

The University of San Francisco's Center for Asia Pacific Studies will host Mei Fong to discuss China's shift to the two-child policy.

November 30, 2016 5:15pm to 6:30pm
This year the world's most populous nation announced a nationwide shift to a two-child policy, heralding an end to the three-decades plus one-child policy, the world's largest and most ambitious social experiment that has radically re-shaped one sixth of humanity and created long-lasting global consequences, affecting everything from the environment to economics to the global adoption market.
