The Director of the Institute says:
I am delighted to join SOAS and very much look forward to working with colleagues, students, visitors and international partners to build on the excellent foundation that my predecessor Professor Michel Hockx had laid. With your help and active participation I look forward to building the SCI into the best of its kind in the world. Whoever you are, a student or staff at SOAS, an alumni, a fellow China specialist, a journalist, a public servant, a business person or an independent person deeply interested in China, you are encouraged to explore with me and my colleagues at the SCI to see how we can enhance our understanding and study of China and things Chinese.
I have the pleasure to welcome you to our website, which provide information about who we are and what we do. The SCI regularly hosts public lectures, seminars and other events, and I look forward to welcoming you in person to some, if not all, of them. Please do take a look at what are on offer and join us when you can.
