Speaker: Dorothy Solinger, Professor of Political Science, UC Irvine

Do the 22 million or so urban recipients of the Minimum Livelihood Guarantee [the dibao], whose per capita family income falls below a locally-set poverty line, properly constitute a “class”; and do they see themselves that way? Is the Chinese state benevolent toward these people, and do those who depend upon that state believe they can count on it?

Dorothy Solinger is Professor of Political Science at UC Irvine. She is the author, editor or co-editor of 11 books and of nearly 100 articles. She has held fellowships at the Center for Chinese Studies, University of California, Berkeley; the Center for Chinese Studies, University of Michigan; The Hoover Institution; and The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars; The London School of Economics. 

Her book, Contesting Citizenship in Urban China won the 2001 Joseph R. Levenson prize of the Association for Asian Studies for the best book on twentieth century China, published in 1999. She served as Chairman of the China and Inner Asia Council of the Association for Asian Studies 1988-1990, and will do so again in 2013-14.

She has published two comparative studies, one on industrial policy in China, Japan and France; and one on states' global involvement, workers' unemployment, protest and welfare in China, France and Mexico. In recent years her work has been on migrant farmers, laid-off workers, urban poverty policy and the urban poor.
