Introduction of CGCS

Centre for Greater China Studies (CGCS) aims to enhance interdisciplinary research that highlights the rise of China and its impact on the rest of the world. The CGCS has two major objectives. First, it serves as a research platform to formulate and promote Greater China studies at HSU. Its second objective is to facilitate academic exchange and cooperation between local and international scholars.


The CGCS will focus on four key areas:
1) To facilitate research on the Belt and Road Initiative and the Big Bay Area Development.
2) To encourage research on interactions between China and the rest of the world and accompanying problems that may occur.
3) To promote digital research methods and apply related knowledge to the field of Greater China studies.
