Congratulations to our second-year students who successfully passed their thesis proposal defense today.

At this stage of their academic career, CCSP students need to convince a commission of professors of the relevance and feasibility of their proposed research.

This year, our students focused on a broad array of topics. The following are a sample:

  • Consumption and interpretation of Chinese media in Singapore
  • The impact of inward foreign direct investment on China’s western regions
  • The EU’s changing strategy towards China
  • Croatian students’ migration to China
  • China’s role in the decarbonization process in Europe
  • Identity politics

In addition, many students are working on China’s foreign/bilateral relations with their home countries.
