The arrival of crises, both in terms of global health and the economy, come require conversation and collaboration, yet they come at a time when many of the traditional routes of international engagement have been forced to close. As the spread of Covid-19 remains unchecked and associated geopolitical tensions mount, the world needs a calm and sensible voice more than ever to address the tremendous changes happening and to find ways to collaborate.

Regardless of the distance, CCG is eager to communicate with specialists from many nations and disciplines. In order to adapt to the new situation, CCG has established a new multimedia center in Beijing, where 21st-century technology allows for real-time conversations between old and new friends, allowing them to video-link with leading experts from around the world to better understand current events and find targeted solutions. The “CCG Global Dialogues series” continues to draw hundreds of millions of viewers both domestically and internationally with guests ranging from distinguished journalists and authors and Nobel Prize winners to experienced former top government officials and previous heads of multilateral institutions, as well as world-renowned professors in international relations, commerce, and trade.

Since its inception in 2021, the CCG Global Dialogues series has featured a diverse range of experts and scholars that have provided valuable insights into the trends that are reshaping the world, generating ideas on how we can collaborate to create a more peaceful, prosperous, and inclusive world in the post-epidemic era. CCG will soon publish a new book, Understanding Globalization, Global Gaps, and Power Shifts in the 21st Century—CCG Global Dialogues, published in cooperation with Springer Nature. This book is proof of CCG’s commitment to sharing these insights with the world. This compilation, of the CCG Global Dialogues series held from March to October 2021, aims to share and compare the views of expert scholars in order to deepen understanding on critical issues in globalization, global governance and multilateralism, the world economy, our common humanity, transnational threats, and US-China relations.
