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 Biden Could Improve U.S.-China Relations
After four years of erratic “America First” unilateralism under President Donald Trump, President-elect Joe Biden will inherit a slew of foreign-policy challenges. None is more important than stabilizing relations with China. And, while no one should expect a dramatic turnaround, there’s reason to hope the U.S. and China can at least put a floor under their relationship and even start to cooperate again.November 12 , 2020
Wang Huiyao: No country is an island in the climate crisis
Statistically, the over-70s don’t do well with Covid-19. Unfortunately, the UN seems to be no exception. The pandemic should have been a chance to revive the organisation and prove its relevance during its 75th anniversary. Instead, failure to co-ordinate an effective global response has laid bare its fractures and fragilities. However, that need not be the case for an even greater threat the world faces: climate change.October 15 , 2020

Wang Huiyao: Why Cold War Is the Wrong Analogy for Our Planet
