Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Beijing, the Center for China and Globalization (CCG) is China’s leading global non-governmental think tank.

CCG is also a national Postdoctoral Programme Research Center certified by the Chinese Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
While cultivating its own research teams, CCG has also built an international research network of leading experts in China and overseas. CCG engages in ongoing research on China and globalization from an international perspective. CCG publishes more than 10 books every year in English and Chinese and a series of research reports. It shares its research findings with the public and has published hundreds of thousands of related books and reports, which receives hundreds of thousands of website visits annually.
CCG has been involved in promoting many national development and global governance policies. It regularly submits policy recommendations to relevant state agencies and ministries, many of which have been commented on by the central leadership and have served as reference for major decisions made by relevant departments, continually promoting government policymaking and institutional innovation.
CCG has developed a variety of events and platforms, providing effective channels to exchange ideas between policymakers, experts, scholars, and industry leaders. CCG uses these platforms to put forward public policy recommendations and share insights for the public interest. Each year, we hold many high-profile flagship forums which are noted for their international vision, impactful and constructiveness. We also hold more than 100 events annually, including seminars, roundtables, luncheon meetings, release events for new research findings, and policy input exchange meetings.
CCG has established long-term cooperation with many international organizations, international think tanks and related institutions to jointly host seminars for academic exchange or to undertake joint research. CCG is also active in conducting regular international research and exchange activities, attending influential international forums and participating in dialogues on the world stage. As one of the first Chinese think tanks to “go global,” CCG has held bilateral and multilateral events or took part in Athens Democracy Forum, the Paris Peace Forum, the Munich Security Conference, the World Economic Forum，Munk Debates, China Social and Economic Symposium of Harvard University and other important international events. It has maintained close contacts with institutes including the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Council on Foreign Relations (CSIS), the Cato Institute, the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Pew Research Center, Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute，the Korber Foundation，German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP), the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI), the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute and the Asia Society.
CCG has become an important platform for exchange and dialogue between embassies, and international politicians, think tanks and organizations. It has built bridges and mechanisms for communication between China and the rest of the world through holding receptions, round table conferences, and lectures by famous scholars, giving full play to the role of think tanks in track II diplomacy.
After over a decade of development, CCG has grown into a significant think tank with global impact that promotes China’s globalization process. CCG was the first Chinese non-governmental think tank to achieve this feat and is consistently considered the leading Chinese non-governmental think tank in authoritative think tank evaluations at home and abroad.
