US-China Forum 2021: Addressing Inequality and Promoting Social Welfare

November 16-18, 2021

The US-China Forum 2021: Addressing Inequality and Promoting Social Welfare explored the ways in which social policy and social service provision are leveraged to address social problems in the US and China. Through a series of panel discussions, the Forum explored government policy in response to a range of social issues, the ways in which policy and program delivery are implemented on the ground, and the shifting division of labor among state, market, and civil society actors in social welfare provision. The forum convened leading UChicago and Chinese scholars to explore these issues and the implications they suggest for social policy development and implementation.

Hosted in partnership with the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice
