In this talk Sidel, a longtime specialist in civil society and nonprofit issues in China, will review what we know so far about the formation and developing roles of the Party’s Central Social Affairs Department, the new Party group tasked with policy formation over a wide range of social policy issues, and what this development may mean for Party-state policy coordination and boundaries on social policy issues and other possible implications.

This study investigates the installment and management of targeted lockdowns in urban China during the COVID-19 pandemic. Departing from the scholarly focus on either top-down governance mechanisms or the spontaneously rising societal (in)compliance, it highlights the overlooked daily practices of government workers in soliciting consent and collaboration from residents.

Next week! Join us!

Join the Center for Governance and Markets along with the Frederick Honors College and BridgePittsburgh on Wednesday, January 10 at 4:30p.m. for a book discussion with professor Yascha Mounk.

In The Identity Trap (Penguin Random House, 2023) Mounk argues that although appreciating the cultural diversity is vital for our democracy, a new ideology is on the rise: one that puts too much emphasis on group identity, and in doing so, deepens polarization and threatens democracy.
