This research aims to investigate the recent evolution of China’s discourse on development and aid. More precisely, how do China’s policymakers and influential scholars understand and debate China’s role in the field of international development aid, specifically in the context of China as a ‘rising power’.

The organizations included in this brochure are nonprofit NGOs based throughout mainland China. They seek to address issues in a variety of sectors, including children, community development, environment, gender, legal aid, migrant issues, public health and disabilities.

A range of issues and recommendations are raised in this report. Philanthropy’s contributions to international development should be better measured, and there is a need for a stronger emphasis on better data overall in terms of both measuring progress, and enabling a better understanding of the range of potential grantees working on development themes.

The toolkit provides practical templates and models to assist with the generation of innovative new ideas and their implementation into economies.

This Issue includes articles on Chinese philanthropy, the Chinese women’s rights movement and Volunteering in Sichuan.

This eBook reviews different roles, experiences, and lessons learned from working with civil society in development cooperation. It compares and analyses common themes and good practices from numerous aid-providing countries.

This report is not an academic study in the strict sense of the word, but rather uses selected case studies to make observations about the development of public advocacy in China over the last few years.

This study shows how to measure a country’s philanthropic environment and what concrete policies encourage or restrict it. The research comes at an opportune time as new governments throughout the world strive to work positively with civil society.
