As an expert in social welfare, most of ZHANG Xiulan’s research and teaching, as well as policy analyses are related to disadvantaged people. In the past ten years, she has done policy-related work in the areas of social assistance, migrant issues, preschool education for underserved children, and services for people living with HIV/AIDs. Through her work as a Rajawali Fellow, she will examine the United States Welfare to Workforce policy, and assess how similar social assistance/labor market policies can be created in China.
