Abstract

The chapter explores transnational influences, global and local
networks and organizations (governmental and nongovernmental), in the
development of domestic violence policy in China and England. The frameworks of traveling theory (Said, 1984; Min, 2005) and global social policy and international relations approaches to policy transfer such as policy entrepreneurs (Stone, 2001) are used to discuss the different domestic violence policy trajectories in the two countries.
