China enacted its first comprehensive charity law in 2016. Since then, thousands of charities have been registered by Chinese regulators. Under this background, Professor LYU will introduce the history of charity legislation in China and further analyse the impact of the Charity Law 2016 on the development of charities. By contrast, Dr. LI will focus on the laws governing charitable collections. Currently a range of problems exist in the area of charitable collections, such as a lack of effective regulatory measures relating to non-charitable collections, an excessive limitation on the carrying out of charitable collections, and an inefficient regulatory system dealing with the issues concerning the innovative combination of online and traditional collections. The related reform measures should be implemented to solve those problems in a systematic way.
