Abstract
Essay 1: “The Development of China’s NGOs: Constraints and Opportunities” attempts to study the current environment of China’s NGOs by examining the main problems that NGOs in China face, including institutional and financial constraints, and demonstrating the opportunities China’s NGOs have when China faces the consequences that economic reform and globalization bring. Essay 2: “Is Globalization Pro-poor in China?” examines the relationship between globalization and decreasing poverty, and also the relationship between globalization and increasing inequality, and tries to answer the question of whether globalization is pro-poor in China. It concludes that globalization has helped reduce poverty by providing better working opportunities to the poor, but it also has increased the vulnerability of the poor; the negative effects cannot be denied. It also implies that with proper polices, we can make globalization more pro-poor.
