China: Labour Law, Welfare System, Social Movements, Politics
In this issue, Made in China presents three distinct perspectives on how the party-state manages and controls Chinese society. First, they consider the role of labour law in China as a vehicle for reinforcing capitalist hegemony. They then look into the limitations of the welfare system in relation to migrant labour. Finally, they challenge some widely-held assumptions about the political nature of land-related social movements in the Chinese countryside. The issue also includes a forum on how precarisation has impacted the Chinese workforce and an article that reflects on the role of poetry as a form of resistance.

Made in China is a quarterly newsletter on Chinese labour, civil society, and rights.

This project has been produced with the financial assistance of the Australian Centre on China in the World, ANU, and the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 654852.
