This working group suggests that the question of welfare and gender equality in the Chinese and Nordic contexts must be approached intersectionally, from historical and feminist transnational perspectives. We argue that welfare solutions cannot be answered by simply applying a supposedly good welfare model, with set policies and practices, from one context to another. Neither can they be found by interpreting or diagnosing the problems and issues of welfare policies in a specific context through a conception of a welfare regime that is pre-supposed to be universal and coherent.
