Founded in February 2007, the IU Research Center for Chinese Politics and Business (RCCPB) is committed to providing thought leadership on issues that meet at the intersection of Chinese politics and the global world of business. Together with our partners and affiliated faculty, they seek to understand how China’s regulatory environment and political system shape the behavior of and chances for success of Chinese and foreign businesses; how economic conditions and corporate behavior shape Chinese regulatory framework and political institutions; and how China’s international economic engagement affects China herself, her trading partners, and global governance institutions such as the WTO.

The Center breaks down traditional boundaries by bringing together scholars from multiple disciplines and by building bridges between universities, stakeholders, and policymakers in the United States, China, and elsewhere.  It publishes a working paper series, academic articles, books, policy reports, as well as op-eds every year.
