China’s One Child Policy:
Past, Present and Future
China’s controversial one-child policy has been phased out after over 35 years, and replaced since October 2015 by a two-child per family policy. So how has the new policy changed things? Will it put pressure on women to have more children? Will it help resolve China’s gender imbalance? What are the implications for Hong Kong and the rest of the world? These and other questions will be covered in a conversation with the speaker.
Mei Fong covered Hong Kong and China for many years for the Wall Street Journal and was recently named a Top 50 influencer on US-China relations by Foreign Policy magazine. Her first book, “One Child: Story of China’s Most Radical Experiment”, debuted in 2016 to critical acclaim. The book was chosen as one of 2016’s top 10 non-fiction books by Zocalo, Medium’s Best Human Rights Books of 2016 and was winner of a non-fiction award by the American Society of Journalists and Authors. She is also a fellow at DC-based think tank New America.
