    I am looking for a panel on studies of NGOs. My research area is Non-government Organizations in China.

    Kindly contact me via bingling.wei@adelaide.edu.au.

    My abstract is given below:

    Title: A theoretical analysis of Red Cross Society of China in Mao Era (1949-1976)

    The Red Cross Society under Mao era (1949-1976) depicts the dynamics presented to a civil society organization through socio-political and ideological changes. The organization experienced new socio-political structures brought about by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) through the ushering of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). The Red Cross Society benefited from the socialist policies, governmental policies that the Mao government adopted. The evolution of the Red Cross Society was notably as a result of the environment precipitated by the political and social elements linked to the administration and the renewed class consciousness. The interactions between the state and society were integral in the changes and reorganization of the humanitarian body. The devolving of power and social functions to the grassroots as part of the CCP’s manifesto helped in expanding the Red Cross society’s local network. However, the Red Cross Society of the Republic of China faced challenges that emanated from some of the ideological shifts adopted by the government as years went by.
