About Global China Dialogue

Global China Dialogue is a series of events to enhance public understanding of current global affairs and common interests via public dialogue and discussion between Chinese and non-Chinese academics, experts, professionals and practitioners and interested laypeople, from interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives. Apart from universities, research institutions and professional think tank, we will also engage with governments of different countries and international organizations, media and publishers. Each event will have a small panel of experts, ready to put their point of view and engage in lively, fully interactive debate with all those present, in order to educate, enlighten and entertain. It aims to focus on global hot topics and hold the forum at different places in order to provide a platform for engaging China and the Chinese to participate in global governance and advance the global public good.

Organisers: 

  • CCPN Global – a UK-based international academic society focusing on the study of China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective
  • YES Global – The Young Entrepreneur Society Global, for young entrepreneurs and future leaders to share knowledge, opportunities and resources to promote global commercial cooperation

Topics: Topics of dialogue will range from China development, education, language and culture to government and politics, migration, the family, climate change, the environment, global public health, and human security, etc.
