Associate Professor Kristen Hopewell, Canada Research Chair in Global Policy in the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs at the University of British Columbia, has been appointed a non-resident Wilson China Fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.
The Fellowship seeks to deepen understanding on China’s impact on Asia and the U.S., and its impact on peace and security issues, by producing new and original pieces of research. The Fellowship also aims to build bridges between traditional academia and the policy world, and to support a new generation of North American scholarship on China.
Dr. Hopewell says of the appointment: “I am excited to have this opportunity to engage with policymakers and scholars to better understand the nature and implications of China’s rise for the global political economy.” Her research project will examine the “Impact of China’s Trade Policies on Global Development: Agriculture and Fisheries.”
The Wilson China Fellowship is hosted by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars Asia Program, in conjunction with the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States.
