China Policy Institute

About the Institute

Jonathan SullivanBased in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham, the China Policy Institute (CPI) is a major centre of expertise on contemporary China.

The CPI is explicitly outward-facing, drawing on a network of Internal and Non-Resident Senior Fellows to engage with a range of stakeholders in government, business, civil society and the media. Our network of academic China specialists facilitates evidence-based policy and decision-making through a program of engagements and dialogues.

The regular CPI-FCO Seminar connects academics and foreign policymakers; the CPI Stakeholder Dialogues join China specialists in various professions with academics and students at the University of Nottingham; China Policy Institute: Analysis and social media provides daily commentary on contemporary events by world renowned China scholars; CPI Policy Briefs provide timely responses to breaking events; a series of policy focused activities draws on our partnerships with the Institute of Asian and Pacific Studies and the Asia Business Centre; the Taiwan Studies Programme holds an annual conference attended by world renowned scholars and policymakers.

Under a new leadership team, the CPI's mandate is to coalesce, facilitate and maximize the external engagement and impact work based of China focused staff across all disciplines at the University, including colleagues based at our China and Malaysia campuses.

The CPI is committed to sharing insights from academic research in an impartial manner, promoting scholarly exchange and vigorous debate among leading China experts and policy-makers from around the world.
