Carnegie China

Carnegie China brings together leading policy experts and practitioners from China and around the world to engage in collaborative dialogue and research. The center works to examine Chinese foreign policy and U.S.-China relations across Asia and beyond.

Carnegie China is part of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s well-established Asia Program, which provides clear and precise analysis to policymakers on the economic, security, and political developments in the Asia-Pacific region. Carnegie China works with Carnegie’s other global centers to host conferences, roundtables, seminars, and closed-door briefings, and to publish timely and incisive analysis on the most pressing global issues, including international economics and trade; energy and climate change; nonproliferation and arms control; and security threats in North Korea, Iran, South Asia, and the Middle East.
