MERICS

Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS)

The largest European research institute focusing solely on the analysis of contemporary China and its relations with Europe and the wider world.

Since its foundation in 2013, MERICS has established itself as the go-to European think tank on China.

With about 20 full-time international researchers, from all over Europe, the United States, Australia and Singapore, MERICS is currently the largest European research institute focusing solely on the analysis of contemporary China and its relations with Europe and the wider world.

MERICS plays an active role in informing European public debates on China and in providing senior decision-makers across Europe with in-depth China-related insights critical to their portfolios. MERICS publications often drive China policy debates and are frequently quoted in European and international media.  

MERICS was founded by the Stiftung Mercator to strengthen knowledge and debate about China in Germany and Europe.
