This is a pivotal time for Chinese labor relations. Strikes are on the rise. The government is cracking down on labor NGOs. And lay-offs involving millions of workers are expected. A diverse panel of scholars and NGO leaders will analyze these recent trends. Han Dongfang, director of China Labour Bulletin in Hong Kong, will deliver a video-recorded update of the on-the-ground situation.  Commentary will be provided by Aaron Halegua and Cynthia Estlund of NYU Law School, Eli Friedman of Cornell University, and Michael Posner of NYU Stern School of Business. Jerome Cohen of NYU Law School will moderate the event.
