Freeman Chair in China Studies

Welcome Pine

The CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies is dedicated to delivering informed public policy debate, expert briefings, and strategic policy recommendations on greater China and East Asia to the diplomatic, policy analysis, business, and government arenas.

About the Freeman Chair 

The CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies was established to advance the study of China and to promote understanding between the United States and the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. The Freeman Family—Luther Freeman, as a clergyman, Mansfield Freeman, as a scholar-business leader, and Houghton Freeman as a corporate executive in a global enterprise—have established a tradition of contributing to international understanding through practical experience in East Asia and China.

The United States has a long-standing relationship with China and the countries of East Asia—these countries that play increasingly important roles in the future international system in terms of economics, politics, culture, peace, and security. In the diplomatic, public policy, business, and government fields, Americans and the peoples of China will benefit from greater mutual appreciation and understanding through broad based international exchange.

关于费和中国研究项目
 
国际战略研究中心费和中国研究项目旨在深入对中国的研究并增进美国与亚太各国之间的了解。作为创办人的费曼家族包括神职人员路德•费曼、学者兼商界领袖曼斯菲尔德•费曼以及跨国企业主管霍顿•费曼,长期以来通过在东亚和中国的切身实践为国际间相互理解作出了贡献。
 
美国长久以来一直与中国及东亚各国保持密切的关系,而这些国家在国际的经济、政治、文化、和平与安全等各领域日益发挥重大影响力。中美两国人民将通过外交、公共政策、商业和政府等多个领域的互相学习了解与广泛的国际交流而彼此受益。

The Freeman Chair in China Studies lost its benefactor and guiding spirit, Houghton "Buck" Freeman, in late 2010. Click here to read testimonies of Buck as a generous and thoughtful person who truly cared about America’s relationships across the Pacific.
