Andrew Walder is the director of APARC, a professor of sociology and an SIIS senior fellow. He is an expert on the sources of conflict, stability and change in communist regimes. Walder’s current research focuses on the impact of China's market reforms on income inequality and career opportunity. He is also conducting historical research on the Cultural Revolution of 1966-1969, with an emphasis on the Beijing Red Guard movement during 1966 and 1967.  His publications include: "Career Advancement as Party Patronage: Sponsored Mobility into the Chinese Administrative Elite," in the American Journal of Sociology (co-authored with Bobai Li, 2001) and "Politics and Life Chances in a State Socialist Regime: Dual Career Paths into the Urban Chinese Elite, 1949 to 1996," in the American Sociological Review (co-authored with Bobai Li, 2000).
