Message from the Directors

 Welcome to the Centre for Chinese Research

Founded in 1992, the CCR is the University of British Columbia’s hub for academic research on China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, and the greater Chinese-speaking world.

The Centre’s central mission is to promote Chinese research, broadly defined. UBC is fortunate to count among its faculty leading Sinologists (Chinese studies specialists), as well as researchers in fields such as forestry, law, business, and medicine whose research engages substantially with Chinese populations and territories. The Centre enhances UBC’s research capacities in these areas by supporting professional researchers and their students, as well as by hosting visitors from other institutions. The Centre also makes Chinese research accessible to the public through events, publications, and other forms of outreach.

The Centre for Chinese Research embraces the public mission of its host institution, UBC, by making research about China and the Chinese-speaking world available to the broader community.

The Centre entered its 25th year in 2016, and we hope that you will support the CCR’s mission by joining our outstanding network of scholars, students, staff, and community members. Tuum est!
