We help leaders make better decisions on China by providing Learning & Development programmes & Pathfinder Dialogues.
In an era witnessing a rise of misinformation, polarising politics and divisive media, the decision-making context on matters related to China is extremely complex. Since the end of the ‘Golden Era‘, the discourse on China in the U.K. has become dominated by hawks, apologists, and special interest groups pursuing narrow agendas. Recognising that there was a market failure in the U.K. in fostering a national China-facing capability, the UKNCC was established in 2020.
Today, UKNCC is Britain’s leading independent educational non-profit on China. As a community interest company (CIC), UKNCC is also Britain’s only China-focused organisation that is legally prohibited from lobbying under U.K. law.
The issues raised by China’s role in security, climate change, global health, trade and investment, and human rights are interconnected and affect the U.K. government, businesses, and civil society alike. It is our belief that leaders make their best decisions when they have access to balanced, robust information and are supported by seasoned specialists with academic and practical, real-world experience.
Our aim is to enrich the decision making context so leaders can make informed choices.
Our vision is for a United Kingdom where decisions on our political, economic, and cultural engagement with China are made on an educated basis, informed by constructive dialogue.
