Description
Prior to 2016, China’s management of foreign NGOs and foundations was uneven and even occasionally relaxed for an authoritarian country. But last May, authority and management was moved to the Ministry of Public Security, under a new Overseas NGO Law and a political policy that has brought significant change to the work of foreign organizations in China. This talk by Law Professor Mark Sidel outlines these new policies and their initial effects.
