Parallel Session 6: The Role of Think Tanks as Driving Force for a More Sustainable Asia

Oct 25
Room 210, Maha Chulalongkorn Building

In recent years, building think tanks in university systems has been promoted by the Chinese government as a way to better engage academic communities and resources in the course of social and economic development as well as the decision-making of China’s international roles and relations. This panel focuses on the recent explorations of the top think tanks, those based at universities, in particular, in China, and investigates their operating model and practical paths to promote social sustainable development in contemporary China. Based on the cases in China, the role of think tanks as a driving force for a more sustainable Asia will be discussed further.
