About the Topic

China’s family planning policy is known as the most drastic family planning effort in the world. The talk has three goals: 1) to provide a broad overview of China’s family planning policy from 1970 to 2012; 2) to introduce the newly installed “two-children policy” and its background; 3) to forecast future policy trends. The speaker will cover her research on fertility intention of Chinese women since 2002. She will conclude the talk by discussing unintended consequences of China’s family planning policy.
