Sino-Nordic Welfare Research Network

 

 

The Sino-Nordic Welfare Research Network (SNoW) was established in 2010, and has been funded by NordForsk and the Nordic Council of Ministers during 2011-2015. The University of Bergen provided basic funding in 2016. The Nordic Centre at Fudan University and the Norwegian General Consulate in Shanghai have contributed to funding of PhD courses and/or workshops/conferences. There is no basic funding as of 2017, but activities will take place on the basis of ad-hoc funding from various sources. As of 2017, the quarterly newsletter will not anymore be published on a regular basis. No SNoW-activities have, as of March 2017, been planned for 2017. The project is directed by Professor Stein Kuhnle, Department of Comparative Politics, University of Bergen.

 

The Nordic Centre at Fudan University in Shanghai serves as the administrative hub of SNoW in China.

Most activities in China are organized with the assistance of the Nordic Centre, and takes place in its building.
