Call for Papers: China's Work and Labor in the Era of Industrial Transition and Globalization Crisis

Labor relations in transitional China have been a core issue in contemporary Chinese and global sociology. Since the early 2000s, sociologists around the world have studied Chinese working conditions and labor process, workers’ organizations and culture, and labor-rights protection when China was becoming the world factory. Recently, however, significant changes have taken place in both Chinese and international political economy, such as industrial upgrading and restructuring, technological innovation, and the seeming de-globalization, all of which are leading to a new chapter for studying China’s work and labor. In response to those new structural changes, the Journal of Chinese Sociology (JCS), sponsored by the Institute of Sociology, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, hereby calls for papers from sociologists and social scientists at home and abroad.
