China and the World

Collaborating with research centers across the world to better understand China’s global interactions.

China continues to occupy a central and growing role in global affairs. Building on the Fairbank Center’s 60 years of engaging in scholarship on U.S.-China relations, we are launching new collaborative research projects with centers across Harvard to better understand China’s interactions with other regions worldwide. In fall 2015, the Fairbank Center and Harvard’s South Asia Institute launched a collaborative project on “Meritocracy in China and India,” and we continue to find new ways to develop research on China’s role in Africa with Harvard’s Center for African Studies.
