SPRC research projects contribute significantly to policy developments and government reforms in China.

For more than 10 years, our researchers have worked collaboratively with the Chinese government, local authorities and communities, researchers, not-for-profits, civil society, and other key organisations to conduct research that informs the development of effective evidence-based social policy.

This research has had a direct influence on almost all major reforms to China’s child protection policy over the past decade, including the introduction of a national orphans’ allowance and foster care guidelines. It is estimated that more than 750,000 children have directly benefited from these policy changes to date, with millions more children benefiting indirectly.
