The Evolution and Current Development of the Chinese Red Cross Movement
on Wednesday, 22nd October, 12–14 h in LE 736
Established in 1904, the Red Cross Society of China – the longest existing society in modern China – has due to its history of more than one hundred years been nick-named the "Century-Old Shop." It emerged in the late Qing Dynasty and developed through the Republic of China into the present in the People’s Republic of China. The historical evolution of the Chinese Red Cross Society reflects changing times, closely tracing the development of Chinese society.
The lecture will be held in Chinese, supported with English-language ppt.
