Chinese Politics in Globalized World

The University of Bergen, in co-operation with Nordic partners and Fudan University in Shanghai, launched the first edition of the Chinese Politics in a Globalized World semester program in 2012. The program targets Nordic and local Chinese students (advanced BA and MA) associated with the Nordic Centre at Fudan University in Shanghai. After a successful start in 2012, the University of Bergen and its partner universities have now announced the second edition of the Chinese Politics in Globalized World program to take place at the Nordic Centre and School of International Relations and Public Affairs at Fudan University in the Spring semester 2013.

This is an exciting opportunity for students wanting to study Chinese politics and developments in a global perspective. The semester-long course, building on three modules, offers students unique insights into the growing interdependence between Chinese and world developments, Chinese domestic politics and society, as well as opportunity to study Chinese culture and language (beginner and advanced language options). The course program offers ample opportunities to integrate in a Chinese university environment, with half of the students and teachers coming from Chinese (Fudan) and Nordic universities. The course is a collaboration between the Nordic Centre and the School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University; Department of Comparative Politics, University of Bergen; Department of Political Science and NIAS (Nordic Institute of Asian Studies), University of Copenhagen.
