China Research in the GLO Discussion Paper Series: Xi Chen of Yale University and Zhong Zhao of Renmin University are Top Authors

Klaus F. Zimmermann is the President of the Global Labor Organization (GLO) and has taken office in October at Renmin University of China, where he is also an Honorary Professor. This Sunday, he will give a keynote speech on “Recent Labor Market Research on China”.

GLO is publishing an influential Discussion Paper series. While Chinese scholars are 4% of all GLO Fellows and Affiliates, the share of papers who have covered issues of the Chinese labor market is 5.5%. Below they are listed with direct link to the freely downloadable papers. It is the objective of various activities of GLO this year in China, see the China program page, to increase the number of GLO members and the number of the Discussion Papers covering China significantly.

The two top GLO authors among GLO Discussion Paper authors are Xi Chen from Yale University, who is also the GLO Cluster Lead on “Environment and Human Capital, and Zhong Zhao of Renmin University of China.They have contributed both equal numbers of papers. They stand together for nearly 60% of all research.

Michele Bruni, EU Resident Expert and Team Leader, EU-China SPRP and based in Beijing has worked on the demographic situation of China. His GLO Discussion Paper No. 222 on China (see link below) is summarized as:

“China still lags behind Europe along the path of the demographic transition and therefore is still much younger. However, due to the speed with which the fertility rate dropped and life expectancy increased, China’s ageing process will proceed at a very fast rate and around the middle of the century the population of China is projected to be as old as that of France and the UK and older than that of the USA. The paper tries to evaluate the labor market and welfare implications of this process, also by an economic indicator of dependency and socioeconomic burden.”
