China Development Brief Is Surveying Foreign NGOs


If you work with a foreign NGO that is working (or seeking to work) in China, the good folks at China Development Brief would like to hear from you. In an effort to get a fuller picture of the current state of foreign NGOs in China, they are conducting a survey. Here is their description:

It has been over 18 months since the Law on Administration of Activities of Overseas Nongovernmental Organizations in the Mainland of China took effect on January 1st, 2017. Over 400 organizations have successfully registered so far, and more are still trying. It has been a learning experience for both the organizations, whether registered or not yet, and the Chinese government. Such experiences are all important stories within China's NGO history. 

This survey is conducted by CDB (China Development Brief), and it is designed to collect information on how the law has affected the work of overseas NGOs in China, for the purposes of research and analysis. Any information concerning specific organizations will be treated confidentially. We would be grateful if you could take the time to answer the following questions as extensively as you wish. Thank you!

The 10-question survey can be found here.
