After we set up the website of ‘China in Comparative Perspective Network (CCPN)’ at LSE in 2008, we received a stream of generous and encouraging feedback.

Here is a selection of these endorsements (listed in alphabetical order):

'I have found very interesting this new website that has been launched to offer insight in the study of contemporary China, and I would like to join the network'. - Professor Eugenio Anguiano, Centre for Studies of Asia and Africa, El Colegio de Mexico; Former Ambassador of Mexico to China

‘The CCPN … looks most interesting and valuable, … the current emphasis on entrepreneurs is excellent’. -- Professor Francesca Bray, Head of Social Anthropology, University of Edinburgh

‘I think it looks really clear and helpful, a very exciting project’, and an ‘obviously a great project’. -- Professor Harriet Evans, Coordinator of Asia Studies research, University of Westminster; Former President of the British Association for Chinese Studies (BACS)

‘I have a very strong research interest and involvement in the current global concerns for sustainable development specifically related to the interface between economics and environment. One of the primordial concerns in China today is her ability to manage and control the impact of her economic advance to ecology of China in particular and the world in general. … It is of critical importance for the CCPN…to get acquainted with the global issues related to Climate Change, Global Warming, Ozone Depletion, as well as the global mechanisms related to this like the ISO 14000 on ecology as well as the global regulatory mechanisms established by the UN Nation Agencies involved in Economics of Environmental Management of the Planet Earth. ... On top of this, it is of critical significance that their academic formation and orientation must be coupled with a more precise knowledge on the interface of economics with ecology as well as interface of economics with culture. In brief, this dynamics of the economics of ecological anthropology maybe aggregated to a system of the C, N, E Equations, where C refers to Cultural Capital, N to Natural Capital and E for Economic Capitalization of China today. … I am pleased that you have extended this worthwhile invitation to me. Indeed, I feel honoured about this.’ -- Dr Ernesto R. Gonzales, Director, Social Research Centre, University of Sto. Tomas, Espana, Manila, Philippines; Chair-Economics, National Research Council of the Philippines
