AbstractIn common with most countries in the world, China is facing an increasing demand for welfare. The free-market economic reforms of the last decade have dramatically transformed social policy in China, which is gradually retreating from an egalitarian and collective approach and moving towards a pluralistic and "residual' orientation. Now, widening income inequalities are accepted as both necessary and inevitable. Under the slogan of "dismantling the iron rice bowl', major welfare "reforms' were introduced in the 1980s. This article serves to describe the transformation process and delineate the trends of welfare development. -from Author
