Research & Publications

 

The Centre is a member of the International Consortium of China Studies (ICCS). The Centre is also a member of the Sino-Nordic Urban Governance for Sustainable Cities Network (UGN).

 

Past Projects

 
CEAS has developed projects also with funding from external sources such as the Academy of Finland and the Joel Toivola Foundation. The Academy of Finland awarded the Centre a grant for the years 2007–2009 for a research project entitled Governance in Urban China Charities and the Multilayered Relationship between the State and Society in the 20th Century Tianjin.

CEAS coordinated a joint doctoral training programme with Fudan University in 2013–2014 with support from CIMO​. The theme of the 8 ECTS programme was "Sustainable Cities".  The goal of the programme was 
to train specialists who can integrate knowledge and theories from several fields to find solutions that promote a sustainable change of cities.​
 
CEAS coordinated a national Doctoral Programme of Contemporary Asian Studies (DAS) in 2002–2013. The DAS was a multidisciplinary doctoral programme open to all doctoral candidates in Finland focusing on East, Southeast and South Asian topics in their research. Because national funding for doctoral programmes in Finland ceased, the DAS was closed after the last funding period. National cooperation in doctoral training continues within the Finnish University Network for Asian Studies coordinated by CEAS.
