On 3 July 2013, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and UNRISD signed a Memorandum of Understanding which for both parties represents the beginning of a fruitful partnership. The Memorandum of Understanding is intended to strengthen scholarly cooperation between the two organizations by means of collaborative activities such as:
- joint conferences and consulting activities;
- collaborative research and the exchange of researchers;
- joint publications.
The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding was preceded by a seminar given by CASS Professor Li Yang entitled “The Legend of China’s Growth”, as part of the UNRISD Seminar Series. Professor Li Yang holds the role of Vice President of CASS and is a member of the Financial and Economic Committee of the National People’s Congress.
The full podcast of the seminar, which explored the drivers behind China's record economic growth over the last 3 decades, is available on our website and can be accessed here.
