New ThinkChina Analysis: In Between - Gender, Solidarity and Legality? Part I
Part I (of II): European and Chinese Perspectives
Read the first part of the two-part-analysis on the issues of gender and solidarity in China and the EU.
Hanne Petersen discusses similarities between EU and China in the 21st century; Both parts are strongly influenced by neoliberal ideas, inequality and social tensions. In China, this led to a development of a neo-Confucian ideology, and an emphasis on the ‘Harmonious Society’. In the EU, solidarity was similarly invoked as a means to minimize said tensions.
