The Global China Conversations provide a 60-minute online discussion forum that fosters the exchange of ideas between research and practice. The Conversations are hosted by the Kiel Institute China Initiative in cooperation with the Centre for Modern East Asian Studies (CeMEAS) at the University of Göttingen, KOF Swiss Economic Institute at ETH Zürich, and Wildau Technical University of Applied Sciences.
Our invited speakers – academics, policymakers, and practitioners – present their insights on key issues related to China’s growing role in the world economy and the implications for German and European businesses and policymaking. The Conversations offer a research-based discussion forum to exchange views and experiences on Europe-China economic relations.
The Conversations take place on an irregular basis (roughly once per month) and are scheduled on Thursdays before lunchtime in Europe (11:00 AM) and dinnertime in China (5:00 PM).
The Conversations will take place in English or German as will be announced in the invitation email and on the individual event website.
We look forward to your participation and interesting debates.
