Abstract

The issue of cooperation has key policy implications in the current debate about religious organizations in the participation in social work. Adopting a general inductive approach, the author reviews the affinity and conflict between religious charity and social work in China. This paper points out that due to the differences in practical institutional arrangements, there are some issues like the amateur charity, conflicts in service value and unprofessional service in the interaction between religious charity and social work in China. Implications for improving integration are discussed, and a call for promoting institutionalization of religious charity service, cooperating with professional organizations to promote specialization, and seeking cooperation in the field of welfare transmission are made.
