The People’s Map

The People’s Map of Global China tracks China’s complex and rapidly changing international activities by engaging an equally global civil society. We actively bring together researchers and civil society organisations from across the world with in-depth and grounded knowledge about China’s global imprints. We draw on their expertise to build this Open Access and interactive archive of project and country profiles to provide information about Global China that can be updated and referenced, reflecting also the ever-evolving nature of China’s international engagements. This collaborative initiative aims to provide an information infrastructure that reflects not only global and international dynamics, but also supports the articulation of local voices often marginalised by political and business elites.

Global China Pulse

To accompany the Map, we also publish the Global China Pulse (GCP), a biannual publication that focuses on China’s international engagements in their various manifestations. Alongside the informational infrastructure the Map provides, GCP offers a new space to publish content in a variety of styles and, possibly, experiment with different approaches and formats. GCP rests on two pillars: the conviction that today more than ever it is necessary to bridge the gap between the scholarly community, civil society, and the general public; and the related belief that open access is necessary to ethically reappropriate academic research from commercial publishers who restrict the free circulation of ideas.
