The Clingendael China Centre carries out state-of-the-art analyses and policy research with the aim to provide strategic advice and tailor-made solutions for government ministries, companies, business associations, and nonprofit organisations.


European governments, businesses and other stakeholders have started a serious, strategic debate on the growing role and influence of China in the world, including in Europe. Key issues include European responses to 5G, China’s Belt and Road Initiative, human rights, knowledge security, and industrial and competition policy.
