Sisi Sung presents a working paper on ‚An overview of institutional context of private and state-owned enterprises in contemporary China‘

This paper is a starting chapter of my dissertation. The chapter aims at illustrating three institutional factors: enterprises (state-owned and private), labor market, government policies which altogether frame the work context of an individual. The work context represents an important piece of evidence for understanding the overall picture of one’s career choices and work-related behaviors.
