This book critically and comprehensively examines China's welfare development amidst its rapid economic growth and increasing social tensions. It covers the main policy areas from China's inception of the open door policy in 1978 to the new administration of Jinping Xi and Keqiang Li, including social security, health, education, housing, employment, rural areas, migrant workers, children and young people, disabled people, old age pensions and non-governmental organisations. In particular, it critically analyses the impact of policy changes on the well-being of Chinese people.
