The Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Worldwide Universities Network are pleased to announce the call for papers for the Inaugural WUN Global China Conference “Family Transitions, Ageing, and Social Security in China”. The Conference will take place during 5-6 December 2013 at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Since its reform and open-door policy, China has witnessed not only phenomenal economic growth but also significant social and cultural transformations. To understand China’s present and more importantly its future, it is important to have a deeper insight of the interconnections of family transitions, ageing, and social security in various dimensions, including the social science and humanistic perspectives, and mechanisms underlying these changes. The conference aims to examine the key issues arising from family transition, ageing and social security in China, and to combine the strengths and expertise of leading China scholars from around the world so as to provide a unique global perspective on China’s social and cultural transformations.
The deadline for submission is 1 September 2013 at 5:00pm (HK time), and selected papers will be informed around mid-September 2013. More information on the WUN Global China Group and the conference can be found at www.wun.ac.uk/research/china.
