China Report is the flagship journal of the Institute of Chinese Studies, Delhi. It is a refereed journal in the field of social sciences and international relations. It promotes the free expression and discussion of different ideas, approaches and viewpoints. A quarterly journal of the Institute of Chinese Studies, it attempts to provide a fresh approach which goes beyond the strictly utilitarian area studies without becoming antiquarian. Launched in 1964, China Report has, over the years, widened its interests and aims and transformed itself into a scholarly journal that seeks a better understanding of China and its East Asian neighbours - particularly their cultures, development and relations with China. It offers a platform for original research from a multi-disciplinary perspective, in new and emerging areas, by scholars and research students. It seeks to promote a vigorous debate on all aspects of Sino-Indian relations and to highlight India-China comparative studies, and the multilateral and bilateral initiatives and collaborations across Asia. It is an indispensable source of information on China, its society and culture. The journal covers inter-related subject areas - economics, history, international relations, law, politics and sociology. In addition to research articles, the journal carries review articles, book reviews and a documents/speeches section.
