Welfare Reforms, Child Welfare NGOs, and Accountability
Chapter three discusses the background of welfare reforms and NGO development in China. It hones in on the particular accountability issues facing NGOs in China, drawing attention to some of the key institutional and political constraints. This provides the context for a more detailed look at the particular situation of child welfare NGOs. We sketch the development of policies, laws and regulations governing child welfare NGOs, underlining some of the particular challenges in this field, providing contextual background to the subsequent case-study chapters.
