We are calling for participants in the 5th Global China Dialogue (GCD V): Governance for Global Justice. 

This is a one-day event on 7 December 2018, with additional options of pre-dialogue and post-dialogue events on 6 and 8 December 2018 (separate calls will be made for these events).

The China Media Centre at the University of Westminster is co-organising this event with:  

  • Global China Institute, UK
  • Lau China Institute, King’s College London, UK
  • Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University of China (RDCY), China

The Global China Dialogues focus on the global issues facing China and Chinese people and enhance public understanding of current global affairs and common interests through public dialogue and discussion between Chinese and non-Chinese academics, experts, professionals and practitioners and interested laypeople, from interdisciplinary and comparative perspectives.


The event takes place at The British Academy, Houses of Parliament, University of Westminster and University College London (UCL) over the course of three days. More details are available on the Global China Dialogue website.
