Field experiments: Constructing a new national emergency management field in China

Wee Kiat Lim, Ph. D. candidate, sociology, will discuss his field work on emergency management systems in China at this CAS luncheon series event. Using interviews, participant observation and archival review, he traces the Chinese emergency management organizational field created after the 2003 SARS outbreak. His research identifies the provisional successes and failures that have shaped China’s legal and policy landscape on natural disasters over the last decade. Thursday, March 20, noon, CAS Building, 1424 Broadway. Lunch will be provided.
