About CKN

The China Knowledge Network

The Dutch China Knowledge Network (CKN) is a network established to involve China experts and disseminate knowledge within the government of the Netherlands and beyond. Our key task is to connect various angles of research and events to better understand China’s motives, policies and vision to develop more effective policies and better advise social partners.

The library shows solely the research commissioned and financed by the Dutch China Knowledge Network and external organisations. Responsibility for the contents and the opinions expressed rests solely with the authors and does not constitute, nor should be construed as, an endorsement by the secretariat of the Chinese Knowledge Network.
