About Us


The 'Centre for China Analysis and Strategy' (CCAS) is a non-profit and apolitical organization established initially for the objective study, research and analysis of developments relating to contemporary China and Tibet. It will focus on China's internal developments and politics, China's economy, China's armed forces, China's foreign and strategic policies and China's scientific and technological establishment.

The CCAS bases its studies primarily on material and reports in the Chinese and Tibetan languages. These are supplemented with inputs from other specialized published works, meetings with Chinese, Tibetan and other experts in India and abroad, and conferences and seminars related to China and Tibet. Such specialized study of contemporary China and Tibet that will be done by the Centre for China Analysis and Strategy (CCAS) is presently being done by probably no other institute in India and only a few others abroad.

It is expected that its reports, many of which will be specialized, will attract the attention of policy and decision makers in Government, politics and business and, in due course, influence government policy on China and Tibet and Tibetans. It to hopes to invite the attention of persons interested in foreign and strategic affairs and scholars of China and Tibet. The Centre for China Analysis and Strategy hopes to provide a useful and unique service to the public and the Government of India.
