Analyses n° 14: COVID-19 - The impact on rural China, The Monitoring of foreign NGOs
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, much has been said about the containment measures in China’s major cities. But what happened off the epicenters, in rural areas? Scott Rozelle, development economist at Stanford University, researches on the economic and social impact of the disease-control measures in rural China. In this new issue of Briefs | Analyses, he shares his first results. Mark Sidel, Professor of Law at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, explores another relatively unaddressed topic: China’s management of international aid during the COVID-19 crisis.
The two articles in this issue were written following presentations at the webinar on Chinese Society under COVID-19: Coping Strategies on June 3, 2021, which is part of the EURICS/IFRAE/Université de Liège webinar series China in a Time of Pandemics: Politics, Culture and Society.
