Chinese Higher Education Reform and Social Justice, Hardback Book

Chinese Higher Education Reform and Social Justice Hardback

Edited by Bin Wu, John Morgan

Part of the China Policy Series series


In place of a distributive justice perspective which focuses simply on equal access to universities, this book presents a broader understanding of the relationship between Chinese higher education and economic and social change.

The necessity for research on the place of universities in contemporary Chinese society may be seen from current debates about and policy towards issues of educational inequality at Chinese universities.

Many questions arise as a consequence: What are the limitations of neo-liberalism in higher education policy and what are the alternatives?

How has the Chinese government met the challenges of educational inequality, and what lessons may be learned from its recent initiatives?

How may higher education enhance social justice in Chinese society given economic, social, and cultural inequality?

What may be learned from the experience of Macau, Hong Kong, and of Taiwan in terms of achieving social justice in Chinese universities?

These questions are considered by a group of leading scholars from both inside and outside China.
