In Chinaa€™s future social development, there is likely to be an interest in a€œsociety buildinga€ with interactions between top-down and bottom-up approaches, along with a deepened level of social reform and the construction of a harmonious or a€œsymbiotica€ society. This represents one of Chinaa€™s social development models, and is reflected in the Communist Party of China (CPC) and state policy. The term a€œsociety buildinga€ was proposed by Chinese thinkers nearly one century ago, and has been used by Chinese sociologists to study Chinese society since the 1930s. In the 21st century, a€œsociety buildinga€ has been approached as an interdisciplinary concept by Chinese social scientists. The main concern of China for its future social development is to enhance its peoplea€™s wellbeing and encourage them to build Chinese society in innovative and creative ways. This volume showcases the latest research of non-Chinese scholars relating to this indigenous concept and to Chinaa€™s social development in the global context. It tackles the following topics: the assessment of the social impact of infrastructure projects; Chinaa€™s reforms and its changing political system; whether or not the Singapore model is suitable for China to follow; soft power through education; and boundaries, cosmopolitanisms and spaces in Chinese and international cities. The book will be of interest to academics, professionals, practitioners, university students and the general public seeking a comprehensive understanding of China.App. C-4) of this historic meeting was published on the Network (Magazine of the BSA. 2013.
