Dr Andreas Fulda is research active in the fields of EU-China relations as well as philanthropy and civil society in Greater China.
As a trained social and political scientists he received his PhD from Free University of Berlin in 2009. His PhD supervisor was Professor Eberhard Sandschneider, former Director of the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP). In his published PhD thesis he critiqued Germany's foreign and development policy towards China and examined new approaches for civil society assistance.
He wrote his PhD thesis whilst working in Beijing as a development practitioner. As a consultant he helped design and implement three major capacity building initiatives for Chinese civil society organisations: the Participatory Urban Governance Programme for Migrant Integration (2006-07), the Social Policy Advocacy Coalition for Healthy and Sustainable Communities (2009-11) and the EU-China Civil Society Dialogue Programme on Participatory Public Policy (2011-14).
His consultancy work over the past ten years has led to two additional book publications: a Chinese-language Policy Advocacy Manual on Environment and Health for NPOs (Zhongguo Huanjing Chubanshe, 2013) and the book Civil Society Contributions to Policy Innovation in the PR China (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015). For both book projects he enlisted twenty-eight leading scholars and civil society practitioners from around the world. Both publications are testament to his highly collaborative working style.
