Available exclusively through East View, Contemporary International Relations is published bimonthly in English by the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR). CICIR is one of China’s largest and oldest civilian research institutions for international studies and one of its most influential think tanks, with ties to the Ministry of State Security and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. With its significant staff of researchers and analysts, the Institute has made considerable contributions to China's foreign policy decision-making process over the years.

Contemporary International Relations is one of the earliest English publications on international politics and international relations to be published in China. A primary purpose of the journal is to present the views of CICIR researchers on international politics and international relations. The journal’s scope of publication also includes papers by scholars and researchers from other institutes in China and from around the world.

Contemporary International Relations covers topics such as:


  • global politics
  • security and economics
  • country and regional studies
  • international relations
  • Chinese foreign policy
  • international relations theory

    Contemporary International Relations is the ideal resource for insight into the ever-changing face of modern-day China and its relations with the rest of the world.
