About Global China Thinktank

Global China Thinktank is a knowledge-based think tank for social consultancy. It aims to bring resources from China, the Chinese and comparative studies for participating in shaping a global society. It is initially formed by 'Knowledge transfer' and 'Public engagements' of CCPN Global. Instead of transferring a particular knowledge to a specific field, Global China Thinktank is especially keen to transfer knowledge of Chinese social sciences and humanities into a global society, as a kind of 'global transfer of knowledge', or 'globalization of knowledge' from China and the Chinese perspectives.    

We share views from the founding Dean of IAS-Fudan, Professor Deng Zhenglai (1956-2013): 'Today’s China in the global construct brings both challenges and opportunities to the growth of the social sciences. In its transition from theoretical import and replication, China social sciences must become emancipated from two prevailing critical tendencies: one being the absence of Chinese awareness in the westernized global discourse and the other being the disciplinary dissection of China.....'. We need 'to usher in China’s access to the global academic community in the firm belief that Chinese wisdom will make a difference to the direction of worldwide development.' 

Methodologically CCPN Global, the predecessor of Global ChinaI Institute has put forward the innovative idea of 'advanced studies on China'. This was inspired by

Although Global China Thinktank is fostered by CCPN Global, a global academic society for promoting the study of China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective, it focuses on knowledge from China and the Chinese perspectives, not a comparative perspective. The mission of Global China Thinktank is to make a world public platform for globalization of knowledge from a Chinese perspective, and to participate in shaping a 'global symbiosis society'.

A separate website (www.globalchinaunit.org) and a blog (www.blogs.globalchinaunit.org) were set up in order to accommodate it, but our people and all the facilities, e.g. registration, journal, online shop, are shared. Global China Unit consists of four parts. Each is formed by many sub-sections. The structure is:

Knowledge transfer and global transfer of knowledge

Globalization of Chinese social sciences

Chinese for social sciences

'Chinese for social sciences' is in fact 'Chinese language for Social Sciences’, a branch of 'Chinese for Specific Purposes' (CSP), like 'Chinese for science and technology' or 'business Chinese'.

我们赞赏复旦大学社会科学高等研究院创始院长邓正来教授(1956-2013)的观点:全球时代下的中国,对中国的社会科学的成长带来了挑战和机遇。在经历 了西方理论的引入和复制阶段后,中国社会科学要实现两种“知识转型”:‘第一,要从那种因“西方化倾向”所导致的“中国之缺位”中解放出来,…… 第二,要从那种“唯学科化倾向”所导致的“肢解化的中国”中解脱出来,用问题导向的、综合性的交叉学科或“无学科性”(non- disciplinary)研究去解释处于变革之中的整体性中国。’(《邓正来:复旦大学社会科学高等研究院 院长致辞》)


  • 英国伦敦经济学院的、具有方法论意义的跨学科系列讲座“像社会科学家一样思考。
  • 法国“中欧社会论坛”的对话方式和公众参与。
  • 中国复旦大学社会科学高等研究院(IAS-Fudan)以及中国和世界的一些高研院。

虽然“全球中国智库” 是从全球中国学术院及其前身全球中国比较研究会培育出来的,但“全球中国视野”更着重于来自中国和华人视野的知识,而不 是一个比较的视野。全球与中华视野的使命是打造中国和华人参与知识全球化的世界公共平台,型塑全球共生社会。

为此,我们设立一个专门的网站(www.globalchinaunit.org)和博客(www.blogs.globalchinaunit.org),但我们的人员和所有的设施,如会员注册、期刊、网上商店都是共享的。 全球中国智库结构如下:
