Research Brief No. 1 February 2016

Research Briefs are a bimonthly publication from the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies. The Briefs offer analysis of recent developments in China and an introduction to current academic research. The Research Briefs are distributed to our academic, government and business networks.

The Centre is currently soliciting 50-100 word proposals from those who may wish to contribute, including graduate students and colleagues. We are pleased to offer $200 to the author(s) of published Briefs.

The Research Briefs are aimed at a general audience with an interest in China: we expect proposals to tell a coherent story about a topic of general interest. If your proposal is accepted, the full Brief will be approximately 1000-1500 words. The Research Briefs will not include citations, though you may include hyperlinks in the main text to websites or published papers of interest. Avoid academic jargon as much as possible.

Please send your 50-100 word abstract to
