The Global China Institute (GCI, former name CCPN Global, charity No.: 1154640, an affiliate member of The Academy of Social Sciences), is a UK-based academic institution that aims to promote the study of China in comparative perspective in all aspects, and to participate in the building and governance of a global society. As a bridge between China and the rest of world, the Chinese and the non-Chinese, GCI produces both global public good and global public goods to serve for all mankind. It consists of the following departments which also participate in different professional activities separately as independent brands.  

CCPN Global (China in Comparative Perspective Network Global) engages in work on China in comparative perspective, mainly via a global network and a peer-reviewed journal (JCCP). It was formerly known as CCPN at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) before 2014. The phrase: ‘China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective', means to use the case of China or the Chinese as a comparator to compare, contemporarily and historically, with other countries or regions in interdisciplinary, multiple engagements, across institutions, and transnational approaches for advancing general knowledge. We are multi-disciplinary and anticipate linking and pooling the expertise of all experts on China seeking comparative approaches and facilitating collaborative studies on China in its Asian and global contexts. More...

It looks at China from a comparative viewpoint as a player in broader patterns of development, ideas, movements, networks, and systems. Comparison includes using China as a case study to examine a generally applicable theory, or drawing analytic conclusions from comparative data about China and some other country or context. Honorary Editor: Stephan Feuchtwang (LSE, UK), Editor: Xiangqun Chang (Global China Institute; UCL, UK), Review Editor: Keith Jackson (SOAS, UK; Doshisha University, Japan), Associate Editors: Matthew Wills (University of California, UCSD, USA) and Costanza Pernigotti (CCPN Global, UK; ZUMC,Chian). More...
