Abstract

This edited collection mainly deals with the fate of the ‘iron rice-bowl’ (tie fan wan) which has characterized work units (danwei) in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for almost the last 50 years. The term summed up the institutionalized benefits that Chinese urban workers were said to enjoy, such as guaranteed job security and comprehensive welfare (Lu and Perry, 1997).
