Our mission

The Atlantic Council’s Global China Hub is a new program that researches and devises allied solutions to the three greatest global challenges posed by China’s rise: 1) China’s rising political, economic, and informational influence on countries, institutions, and global order; 2) the ramifications of an increasingly repressive China under Xi Jinping for open societies and the global economy; and 3) China’s drive for dominance in emerging technologies and the prospects for expanding digital authoritarianism globally.

The Global China Hub also strives to amplify and strategically expand the Atlantic Council’s body of work on China by leveraging our values, extensive global network, and capacity for integrating insights and information across our 14 other programs and centers.  In doing so, the Hub capitalizes on the Council’s unique capacity to ascertain “ground truth” on China’s trajectory and global impact and to galvanize creative policy solutions among US and allied government stakeholders.

Our pillars of work

At the heart of the Global China Hub is an initiative to capitalize on the breadth of the Atlantic Council’s geographic reach and expertise on China across everything from energy to technology, to the economy, to the integrity of information. The Global China Initiative will draw these veins of work together to provide US and allied decision-makers with strategic solutions to the vexing questions posed by China’s rise.

What happens in China no longer stays in China. Chinese leaders’ approach to everything from economic reform to regulation of the tech industry to mounting political repression will affect China’s trajectory as a great power, with direct consequences for US and allied interests and values. To better understand the domestic drivers of China’s external behavior, China Inside Out will offer new resources that will provide cutting-edge insights and shape more effective policy responses by the United States and its allies and partners.

The competition is on to dominate the emerging technologies and industries of future. At risk are not only the economic benefits associated with advantages in semiconductors, AI, quantum computing, robotics, and other domains, but the future of democracy and individual rights. Developing concrete steps to promote technological advances that bolster democratic governance and individual rights will help the United States and its allies outflank rather than react to China’s future techno-authoritarian efforts.
