Economic and Social Development

Georgetown University’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues addresses economic and social development-related issues and opportunities for cooperation through research, teaching, and dialogue among Chinese and U.S. leaders from the public sector, business, and the academy.

Established in spring 2019, the U.S.-China Research Group on Culture and Society, convened by Becky Hsu of Georgetown University in collaboration with Teresa Kuan of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, brings together American and Chinese scholars across disciplines for structured dialogue and research to explore how American and Chinese individuals and families are seeking happiness in contemporary society. The research group meets over several semesters, alternating between Washington, DC, and China.
