Nanyang China Institute

The Nanyang China Institute (NCI) brings together the intellectual resources of the University in spearheading research on China.  Established in 2011, NCI serves as a focal point in advancing the “New Silk Road” initiative, one of NTU’s “Five Peaks of Excellence.” While NCI welcomes all areas of research on China, it focuses on three main themes at present; namely, (a) Language and Culture, (b) Economy and Sociopolitical Development, and (c) Technology and Social Change. NCI is committed to crossing disciplinary boundaries, to facilitating ground-breaking interdisciplinary research, in gaining deeper understanding and new insight into China’s rich cultural traditions and contemporary development. 

NCI welcomes visiting researchers, organizes regular scholarly activities, and actively engages with international partners, especially with the view of fostering collaboration among the best scholars working on China from all parts of the world, and building a key knowledge hub along the metaphoric “new silk road.”  NCI also complements the University’s Chinese Heritage Centre, which is devoted to research on Chinese Overseas, and key educational programmes such as the School of Humanities and Social Sciences’ Master in Contemporary China programme, and the Master of Public Administration programmes offered by the Nanyang Centre of Public Administration—dubbed the “Mayors’ Class” by the local and Chinese media—designed especially for senior Chinese government officials.​
