Civil Society in China

Professor Karla Simon will be giving a book talk about her highly acclaimed book Civil Society in China at the Harvard Kennedy School. The book was awarded the number three spot on the list of Ten Best Humanitarian Books for 2103 by the Humanitarian Times.
The subtitle for the book is The Legal Framework from Ancient Times to the “New Reform Era,” and in the book Professor Simon explored the connections between laws and regulations and social and economic development in the associational sphere. Her talk will draw these linkages, but she will also discuss the “contradictions” in the state’s treatment of civil society organizations in 2013. She discusses the opening space for some types of civil society organizations and contrasts that with the clampdown on the New Citizens’ Movement.
