UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre

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 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. The Centre was established in 2018 following the award of a research grant by China’s National Reform and Development Commission, which arose in connection with the UK-China Research and Innovation Partnership (Newton Fund) run by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (now BIES).  

An international partnership

The UK-China Global Issues Dialogue Centre brings together key international partners from academia, business, international and civil society institutions to help address global issues. Jesus College works with a range of international partners to support cutting-edge research and innovation in its state-of-the-art West Court development.
