¡¡¡¡Since establishment, Center for American Studies (CAS) has been dedicated
to the promotion of academic communications and dialogues among scholars
and students of the United States and China. Meanwhile, we welcome any
scholars from home and abroad to do research on American issues in CAS
as visiting scholars. We also have held a series of international conferences
and seminars on the issues which are of both the US and Chinese public¡¯s
¡¡¡¡In the past few years, we have invited and received many famous scholars
and personages, including Prof. Joseph Nye, former dean of the John F.
Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, Prof. Harry Harding,
dean of the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington
University, Joseph Robinette Biden, chairman of the Foreign Relations
Committee of the U.S. Senate, as well as chairman of the Foreign Affairs,
Defense and Armed Forces Committee of the French Senate.
¡¡¡¡The strategic dialogue on ¡°Sino-U.S. Relations and Regional Security¡±
is an annual event co-hosted by CAS and US Pacific Forum, held in Shanghai
and Hawaii in turn. Participants of the dialogue are mostly famous experts
and scholars in the two countries, and this has helped to improve the
mutual understanding between China and the U.S., as well as to raise our
reputation across the world.
