The United Nations Studies’ Center of China Foreign Affairs University is an academic research and exchange institution which aims at studying and exploring theory and practice of multilateral cooperation mechanisms by focusing mainly upon the United Nations system under the new era.
Two former directors of the Center were respectively professor Yuan Shibing, a distinguished expert of the United Nations and multilateral cooperation institutions of China, and professor Zheng Qirong, the former vice-president of China Foreign Affairs University. The incumbent director of the Center is Professor Jiang Guoqing, former dean of the International Law Department and former director of the Institute of International Law of China Foreign Affairs University.
The purposes and activities of The United Nations Studies’ Center of China Foreign Affairs University are as follows: to closely study the development tendencies of the United Nations affairs and its related cooperation mechanisms relying upon the solid foundation and powerful sources of the studies and practice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and China Foreign Affairs University; to promote the progress of China’s United Nations studies through conducting inter-disciplinary research work; and to provide theoretical support and services for China to actively participate in multilateral cooperation mechanisms.
China Foreign Affairs University is one of the few designated depository institutions of the United Nations documentation in China. The Center will fully use this depository’s advantage and establish progressively our own database of the United Nations’ studies. We will regularly edit the Newsletter of the United Nations’ Studies, publish timely activities and related research results on the website of the Center in order to make the Center an excellent platform of the academic exchange and cooperation of the United Nations’ studies.
The Newsletter of the United Nations’ Studies mainly introduces activities and research works of the Center while also publishes other related achievements of the United Nations’ studies from outside. Welcome domestic and overseas experts and scholars to write papers for the website of the Center, so that we can form a literary circle to strengthen the United Nations’ studies, and promote together the development of the United Nations’ cause of China.
