Fudan-UC Center on Contemporary China

The Fudan-UC Center on Contemporary China is the first academic institution established by a major Chinese university in cooperation with a leading North American university. It is based in the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS) at the University of California, San Diego. Under the directorship of Professor Richard Madsen, the Center serves to connect all ten campuses of the University of California system with Fudan University in Shanghai. It brings together leading research scholars from both universities for conferences and lectures, and facilitate cooperative research. The Center promotes deeper mutual understanding between the United States and China.
