Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies

 Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies

Welcome to the website of the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies at Durham University. Founded in 1999 CCCS is a multi-disciplinary research centre dedicated to the study of contemporary China and the wider East Asian region, specialising particularly in the fields of Business, Education, Law, Modern Languages and Culture, Geography, Government and International Politics and Political Economy. The Centre gains greatly from having one of the most significant collections on China and East Asia in the UK in Durham University Library. The Centre is strongly committed to collaborative research with our partners in China, including the training of new generations of specialists on the East Asian region. Details of present and past activities are given on these pages, as well as an introduction to the opportunities for training and research on China and East Asia available at Durham University.


East Asia: An International Quarterly has been edited in the School of Government and International Affairs since 2004. It has more than 34 years of history and is currently published by Springer.
