Australian Studies in China

 

The Australia-China Council (ACC) has been supporting Australian Studies in China for over two decades and provides funding to a network of over 30 Australian Studies Centres across China. The network is one of Australia’s leading public diplomacy and education engagement platforms that is set to grow in importance for Australia-China relations.

In 2003 the ACC partnered with a consortium of Australian universities, led by the Australian Studies Centre at the University of Queensland together with the Australian Centre at the University of Melbourne, to promote Australian Studies in China.

The objectives of the ACC Australian Studies Program are to:

  • Enhance the range, volume, quality and value of research on Australia, and promote the dissemination of research outcomes in China through publishing, conferences and other means.
  • Promote greater Australian content in teaching at all levels of the Chinese educational system.

In 2011 the Australia-China Council established the Foundation for Australian Studies in China (FASIC). The Foundation is an independent non-profit foundation in Australia created to support Australian Studies Centres and to provide funding and other support to the BHP Billiton Chair of Australian Studies located at Peking University in Beijing. The BHP Billiton Chair was officially announced by the Prime Minister Julia Gillard in April 2011 and Professor David Walker was appointed the Inaugural Chair in November 2012.

The key objectives of FASIC are to:

  • Bridge two Countries: Support programs or activities that enhance the mutual understanding and engagement between people of Australia and China;
  • Enhance Understanding: Enhance the understanding of Australia in China through funding and other support provided to Australian Studies Centre;
  • Sponsor Educational Activities: Provide scholarships for educational exchanges between Australia and China as well as funding support to a Chair of Australian Studies.

East China Normal University in Shanghai, with the assistance of the ACC, has launched a new website to serve and connect the whole Australian Studies in China network, called the China-Australia Research Network.
