“Thinking Strategically about Civil Society Assistance in China” is a series of interviews conducted in 2014 by Dr Andreas Fulda with leaders in American, European, and Chinese donor and implementing organizations. They aim to shed light on development trends in civil society assistance, portray flagship civil society initiatives, and provide good practice examples. All interviews are published in English and Chinese by China Development Brief and Geneva Global.
The interviews are part of a research project commissioned by Geneva Global.
