China Policy Institute


China Policy Institute

Newly based in the School of Politics and International Relations at The University of Nottingham, the China Policy Institute (CPI) has entered its 13th year as 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.
