Levy/Pissler, Charity with Chinese Characteristics

  • Agnes Schick-Chen, Moderator
  • Katja Levy, Author
  • Knut Benjamin Pissler, Author

Why do Chinese set up charitable foundations? How do Chinese foundations operate in the People’s Republic of China? Which role can and do they play in the authoritarian system? What is the legal and political framework in which they operate? And how do they cope with it?
Katja and Knut Benjamin have conducted extensive fieldwork and document analysis to answer these and other questions about charitable foundations in China. On the occasion of the publication of their book Charity with Chinese Characteristics: Chinese Charitable Foundations between Party-state and Society, the two authors will share their insights on one important actor in China’s charity sector.
