Global governance, international organizations, regional cooperation and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) are key subjects of CCG's globalization research. As China's first think tank named and dedicated to globalization, CCG founded the China and Globalization Forum and contributes to international discussions related to globalization. It has organized seminars under themes such as WTO reform, multilateral governance, and the BRI. CCG was the first body to hold a BRI-themed event at the Munich Security Conference, a world-leading conference in the field of international security and governance.
Based on years of research in the field of globalization, CCG has published numerous research reports and books, including Win-Win International Cooperation and Path to Achievement of the Belt and Road, Globalization and Anti-Globalization and What’s Next for Globalization? Great Changes and China’s Proposed Approaches. The Handbook on China and Globalization published by Edward Elgar Publishing is one of the few books published in English by a Chinese think tank with an authoritative international academic publisher. Two of the CCG's initiatives were selected for inclusion in the first Paris Peace Forum, pioneering a new model for Chinese think tanks to fully participate in global governance and international cooperation. In addition, CCG has long-term cooperation with the WTO, UN, OECD, World Bank, IMF and many other international organizations, international think tanks and related institutions.

Wang Huiyao: How COVID-19 Will Reinforce Trends Shaping the International Order
In just a few months, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. The pandemic has claimed over 100,000 lives and untold economic damage. It is also affecting relations between states, in many cases, for the worse. These momentous events have led many to wonder what the pandemic means for the future of the international order. The short answer is, it is too early to tell. So much about the pandemic remains unknown, from the timeline to an effective vaccine to economic fallout and the possibility of second and third waves of contagion. With those caveats in mind, based on what we see so far, it seems likely that the pandemic will accelerate key trends shaping geopolitics and the world economy, rather than radically alter or reverse them. In particular, our post-pandemic world is likely to be even more multipolar as divergent paths of recovery reinforce long-term shifts in the global economy. Secondly, different aspects of globalization - such as economic or ecological, physical or digital – will follow different trajectories, with varied consequences for different countries and sectors. Thirdly, COVID-19 has exposed the need for stronger global governance to address the rising transnational threats we face. This working paper examines these trends and what they mean for the future of the international order, in particular, China's global role as one of three key pillars of the multilateral order along with America and the EU. Finally, it outlines ways that China and the EU can work together to build a post-pandemic world that is more inclusive, sustainable, and resilient.June 09 , 2020
