The main goal of this year visit to China has been to collect some additional information (hopefully final) useful for the book I am writing about China’s strategy to reclaim world power status. This book should complement the books and articles I published recently on China contemporary reforms by introducing the international dimension of China’s development, i.e.:

- “The Emergence of NGOs in China and the changing role of the Party-State: assessment and future prospects”, China Non-profit Review (English version), Tsinghua University, Beijing, to be published in 2016
I was able to check some of the major hypotheses of the book by presenting them to a group of student of Prof. Li Xiguang (Tsinghua University) and to a group of researchers of the Academy of Macroeconomic Research of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in Beijing. I also had the chance of obtaining feedbacks from Professors Hu Angang, Cui Zhiyuan, Wang Hui, Yong Yonghang, Liu Qiushi (all of Tsinghua University), Prof. Qin Huimin (Renmin University) as well as with people of the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP), the Party School of Zhejang Province, and several young assistants and students in Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou. I also collected official documents and articles written by Chinese scholars.
At the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP) I was appointed visiting professor for 3 years.
This visit was also the occasion for giving several conferences at Tsinghua University, the Academy of Macroeconomic Research of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP), and the Party School of Zhejiang Province.
Finally, I was pleased to be able to join the editorial board of the Journal of Chinese Studies published by Springer on behalf of the Central China Normal University at Wuhan.
