Urban poverty, economic restructuring and poverty reduction policy in urban China: Evidence from Shanghai, 1978â€“2008
Development Policy Review, 2018, vol. 36, issue 4, 465-481
This article uses the city of Shanghai as a case study to analyze the changing institutional mechanisms for the new urban poverty stratum in China. Specifically, the article examines urban poverty in relation to economic restructuring and the transformation of the welfare provision system in three stages of market reforms. The article first examines the overall economic growth strategies at the national level, and then examines local government policy outcomes at the city level. The impacts of institutional changes on urban poverty and social inequality are subsequently. Finally, the article assesses the current poverty reduction policies and proposes a â€œsocial inclusionâ€ framework to alleviate urban poverty in China.
