The Brookings Institution’s John L. Thornton China Center and Yale Law School’s Paul Tsai China Center are launching a new collaboration to advance each institution’s agendas related to China. The new initiative will involve joint programming, research, publications, and cooperative educational activities with an eye toward informing policymaking and public debates on U.S.-China relations.
The Brookings-Yale initiative will leverage the leading roles of each institution in the field of China studies, generating new, creative and influential policy ideas for addressing the challenges and opportunities of the U.S.-China relationship, often considered the most consequential bilateral relationship in the world. Through this partnership, the expanding Tsai Center will increase its Washington, D.C. presence and its capacity to inform public debates on U.S.-China relations. The Thornton Center will build on its reputation for academic depth and policy analysis through deeper collaboration with a pioneering university center focused on China.
