Fafo has been conducting activities in China since 1994 and developed close and constructive cooperation with Chinese institutions. Fafo’s research in China focuses on social, economic and political developments with particular attention to distribution, vulnerability, social sustainability and the impact of social transition for households. We also engage in policy analysis and dialogue with Chinese policymakers and researchers.
Fafo operates a regional office in Beijing.
Our main cooperating partner in China is the Chinese Academy of Science and Technology for Development (CASTED), a research center under the Ministry of Science and Technology. Fafo also has an agreement with China’s Central Party School to conduct scholarly cooperation on the “Nordic Model” of social organization. Apart from this, Fafo has cooperated with the Peking University (Research Center for Contemporary China, RCCC); the Central Finance and Economy University in Beijing, Nankai University (especially their Yunnan institute in Kunming); and Lanzhou University.
