In 1989, UNRISD initiated a project on economic reform and social participation in communist countries. Studies were sponsored in China and several Central and Eastern European countries. The present paper reports on the main findings of the research undertaken in China. This paper attempts to analyze the character of the new organizations which have emerged in the wake of economic reforms initiated in the 1980s. It is based on field work carried out in 1991 in Xiaoshan City in the central-east province of Zhejiang.
