End-of-the-Year Update from Director Allen Carlson
Dear CAPS Community,
Following this year's graduation ceremonies, I, along with Xu Xin, travelled to Beijing to again check in on our CAPS opeartions. As was the case last year, while in Bejing I met with both current CAPS students and our staff. However, the highlight of the trip was a workshop CAPS hosted on the Beida campus. The opening dinner of the workshop was attended by most of the leaders of the School of International Studies (SIS), and other prominent leaders within Beida, as well as a number of distinguished guests. Given the current political climate in China, it was quite extraordinary to convene this meeting at Beida. It is testimony to the strength of the CAPS-Beida relationship, and the expert work of our CAPS staff, that we were able to hold such a session. I think it, along with our extraordinary students and staff, bode exceptionally well for the future of the CAPS program.
Allen Carlson, Director of China and Asia-Pacific Studies
