About the talk: China’s cities may have all the trappings of wealth, towering high rises and bright night skylines. Professor Dorothy Solinger cautions us to look beyond them, highlighting how many denizens experience the inverse of plenitude. She’ll delve into this in her talk through an analysis of the state initiative known as the Minimum Livelihood Guarantee, which was launched in an effort to assist the working class. She’ll illustrate how the program has seen steady decline in state support, and hypothesize that it is not without problematic long term consequences for those in need. About the speaker: Dorothy J. Solinger is professor emerita of political science at UC Irvine, specializing in Chinese domestic politics, particularly political sociology. She has focused on political decision-making and social and political reactions to policy about economic and social matters. She uses a comparative approach to issues such as industrial policy, urban welfare and democratization processes. As a result, she is a leading expert on political change and Chinese domestic politics focusing on social and economic policy.
