About the Lau China Institute
The Lau China Institute is a multi-disciplinary centre for the study of all aspects of China, and with partners across Greater China. It undertakes three core functions:
High quality teaching, through masters and doctoral programmes. The Institute currently has almost forty students in both categories, undertaking research in areas from China’s globalisation, to its political economy, and its culture, history, and scientific traditions.
Extensive outreach through working in partnership with organisations in the business, government, media, and public realm. King’s sits at the heart of a global city, and next to an internationally important financial centre. The Lau China Institute through events, publications, policy seminars and other activities seeks to engage with these communities and their expanding interests in China. We are keen to participate in the public debate on China within the UK and in Europe and globally.
Credible and high impact research: The Lau seeks to support, through visiting researchers, academic partnerships in China, and publications the dissemination of clear, insightful and high quality research. We are particularly interested in promoting innovative, multi-discipline research, and research that can be related to policy outcomes.
The Lau China Institute finally aspires to be the strategic body at the heart of King’s College London’s multi-faceted links with institutions, individuals and issues across Greater China. We aspire to be a global centre, at the global university, in a global city, on a global issue.
