Chinese Politics Research in Progress (CPRP) is a virtual workshop with the following objectives: 1) promoting intellectual exchanges of ideas on frontier research of Chinese politics, and 2) building a dialogue between China scholars and the broader political science community. To this end, this workshop encourages presentation of question-driven research on fundamental issues in political science and Chinese politics.

We welcome presentations by scholars at all career stages (e.g., graduate students, post-docs, junior and senior faculty) in comparative politics and international relations and with different methodological approaches (e.g., qualitative, quantitative, formal modeling).

The CPRP virtual workshop will be held between 12:00-1:00 PM (Central Standard Time) on Fridays every two or three weeks during the regular academic year. The workshop typically lasts for 1 hour. After a brief presentation by the author(s), two discussants – a China scholar and a non-China expert – will provide comments and suggestions. We then open the floor for further questions and comments from the audience.
