Public engagement

From 2013 public engagement at the CCPN Global focuses on China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective related activities.

As one of the objectives of its Knowledge Transfer CCPN committed itself to 'Public Engagements'. This is in accordance with 'A Vision for Science and Society' from the DIUS (Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills). It especially promotes 'public dialogue', describing it as 'a form of deliberative participatory engagement where outcomes are used to inform decision making', and thus 'a core activity for government in its role as policy maker'. It supports the British Academy's response, which focuses on 'enhancing dialogue on science in public debate', the first of the three issues.

'Public Engagements' at CCPN can be seen from the activities below when CCPN was at LSE before 2013:

  • The China-Europe Dialogue on Society provides an arena in which the practice of public dialogue can be encouraged. On 27-28 Oct 2008 the CCPN and the China-Europa Forum, successfully organised the Preparatory meeting in North Europe for the 3rd Biennial of the China-Europa Forum, the only forum focusing specifically on Chinese and European societies. The CCPN participates in China-Europa Forum activities in an ongoing fashion.
  • The CCPN has also formed a partnership with the LSE Students Union China Development Society (CDS) and helped it to organise the first China Development Forum on 31st January 2009 and supported the CDF in 2010, 2011 and 2012. 
  • CCPN has also been involved in the London Universities Chinese Debate Tournament since 2008. 
  • In addition to the above activities the Research Interests Blog, the interactive Discussion Boards, and the Facebook page, etc., also serve to engage both academics and the public.
