Unlike programs that operate within a single social science discipline or an exclusive national-area focus, the China Program promotes interdisciplinary research covering wide-ranging topics, from China’s international behavior and its Belt and Road Initiative to Chinese governance, and from the country’s fiscal reform to its domestic health policies and economics of inequality and education.
In these fractious times of increasing uncertainty in international relations, volatile geopolitics, and unprecedented threats to the global economy, it is all the more important to better understand China. Towards this goal, we actively pursue research collaborations with scholars and leading organizations in China and provide on-campus and in-country research opportunities for Stanford students and faculty
We offer multiple fellowship and training opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals.
We share our research findings through peer-reviewed journals, scholarly and trade presses, policy reports, and Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center’s publishing program.
