Analyzing Welfare Institutions, Policies and Politics in China and the Nordic Countries : SNoW PhD Course 2013

October 17, 2013 - 00:00-October 21, 2013 - 00:00

The SNoW (Sino-Nordic Welfare research network) is a network of Chinese and Nordic researchers and scholars to facilitate Sino-Nordic collaboration in welfare research and higher education and strengthen competence-building and joint research interests through organization of PhD courses and seminars/conferences. The title the PhD course this year is “Analyzing Welfare Institutions, Policies and Politics in China and the Nordic Countries”. 

Welfare states have and can be studied from a number of theoretical and methodological approaches, with various chronological perspectives and with a focus on different empirical phenomena. With this PhD course it is our aim to stimulate cross-­‐disciplinary and multi-­‐perspective discussions and we welcome contributions from political science, sociology, history, social policy, economics, demography as well as other relevant disciplines. Our aim is to bring together PhD-­‐ students from China and the Nordic countries from different disciplines and stimulate a discussion that will challenge and maybe bring us beyond well established concepts and understandings.

Deadline for submission: 10 May 2013

Venue: Nordic Centre, Fudan University, Shanghai, P.R.C
