It was formerly known as CCPN at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) before 2014. The phrase: ‘China and the Chinese from a comparative perspective', means to use the case of China or the Chinese as a comparator to compare, contemporarily and historically, with other countries or regions in interdisciplinary, multiple engagements, across institutions, and transnational approaches for advancing general knowledge.
