‘Address China’s Global Role in a More Strategic and Holistic Way’

The Changing State of Play between International NGOs and China

In our Analysis section, contributor Bertram Lang discusses the need for internationally-active civil society organizations—even those without an official presence in the Chinese mainland—to develop a “specific, organization-wide, global China strategy.” Lang emphasizes the importance of cross-sectoral coordination and cooperation in this process, recognizing the value of both “insider” and “outsider” organizations, and cautions against “engagement just for engagement’s sake.”

Read Lang’s analysis here. For further details, including strategic pointers and practical entry points for leaders of international NGOs, check out the Sector Guide Lang developed in coordination with the International Civil Society Centre.
