UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre

Based at Jesus College Cambridge, the UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre is committed to promoting active dialogue between academics, policy makers and business people around major issues we face in the world today and tomorrow, and in which China is increasingly involved.

These include the opportunities and impacts associated with new technologies, global governance, international development, health and welfare ecosystems, and changing societal norms and expectations.

The UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre conducts research projects, hosts events that promote international dialogue, and publishes findings on global issues where China, by virtue of the size of its population, economy and history, has an important potential involvement. We are also developing an innovation alliance that brings together researchers, companies and government institutes to explore potential complementarities between innovation occurring in the UK and China.

An international partnership

The UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre brings together key partners from academia, business, international and civil society institutions to help address global issues. Our core partners include the following organisations.
