Polling China: Understanding Public Opinion Across China


Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 4:15pm to 5:30pm


Ash Center foyer, 124 Mt Auburn St, Suite 200 North, Cambridge

Join us for a conversation with Ash Center Director and Daewoo Professor of International Affairs Tony Saich and Jesse Turiel, a PhD candidate from Boston University, as they discuss their groundbreaking public opinion survey project in China. Starting in 2003, Saich developed a series of surveys to measure satisfaction with various levels of government in China. Through 2016, the survey project ultimately captured opinion data from 32,000 individual respondents, making it the most ambitious public opinion research project conducted on a nationwide scale to date in China. Ning Leng, Ash Center China Public Policy Postdoctoral Fellow, will serve as a respondent. Fairbank Logo
