The Department is involved in two ongoing projects:
Beyond the China Threat
An investigation of the impact of China's economic growth on the countries of the Asia Pacific. The project led to two workshops in Tokyo: one in June 2015, and the other in October 2016. A book of the same time will be published by the Tokyo University Press in 2017, and a series of articles from the workshops will appear in The Pacific Review academic journal in 2017/18.
16+1 China and Central Europe
A group of researchers is cooperating in preparing a special issue of the academic journal the Journal of Contemporary China looking at China's relations with the countries of Central Europe.
