Participation and Co-determination in Chinese Enterprises

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Beijing and Hans-Böckler-Stiftung extend special thanks to Prof. Dr. Li Hanlin, Director, National Institute for Social Development, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and his team for having made the utmost out of their joint funding of the Research Project "Participation and Co-Determination in Chinese Enterprises". The foundations' motivation to develop and accomplish this project together with CASS was the growing interest in understanding more about the different kinds of communication between management and workforce within different types of chinese enterprises.

Nevertheless, we hope, that for the one (scholars) or the other (member of a supervisory board, works councillor, union official) it might be of interest to learn more about these issues in China resp. how a Chinese research team delivers these important findings.
