  • A roundup on Chinese NGOs going out

In the forty years since the “Reform and Opening up” begun, China has transformed itself from a poverty-stricken country into an economic superpower. This economic strength has provided China with an opportunity to be a significant force in the arena of international civil society. The presence of Chinese NGOs and charities in other countries is no longer unusual, especially in the area of humanitarian aid. Even so, there is a long way to go before Chinese civil society can really pull its weight overseas.

Below is a roundup of all the reports and material on Chinese NGOs “going out” that CDB has published over the last few years. We hope it can be of use to those who are researching this topic.
