China’s social credit system (SCS) gets a lot of attention outside of China yet it’s still very misunderstood. Many scholars and China watchers have shed light on the topic, but none have done it so concisely and accessibly as Kendra Schaefer and her team at Trivium China. She joins us this week to explain how the SCS is a broad framework for better regulation and enforcement and how it applies to companies, individuals, and government agencies.

Key questions

  • What is the purpose of the SCS? How far along is its development?
  • Is the SCS only for individuals?
  • How does the SCS apply to companies?
  • How are China’s cities gamifying SCS?
