-    A Sino-Nordic Gender Studies Network report

In the report Gendered Dimensions of Welfare in China and the Nordic Region. Feminist transformations, visions and recommendations gender studies scholars based at universities in China and the Nordic countries provide recommendations that qualify and expand knowledge on the relationship between gender and welfare solutions in China and the Nordic countries. They also identify areas where further study is recommended and participants may collaborate in order to develop further knowledge on Sino-Nordic welfare issues.

The report is an outcome of the workshop Exploring Gendered Dimensions of Welfare in China and the Nordic Region held by the Sino-Nordic Gender Studies Network and NIAS at the Danish Cultural Center in Beijing in March 2019. The occasion was the collaboration agreement signed in May 2017 between the People’s Republic of China and the Nordic countries. The aim of the workshop was to support and develop the commitment to gender equality and social justice in relation to the Sino-Nordic exchange, with a particular focus on one of the five areas of the collaboration agreement, namely welfare solutions.
