Background

The rapid economic advancement in the past several decades forced China to be more proactively involved with international affairs, when its enterprises and economical interest is present all around the world. The Middle East region is crucial to China's overall energy security. In order to build a more constructive relationship with all the nations in the region, China is gradually shifting away from the "non-interference" policy to a "constructive participation" model in the region's development. For this, China needs its own Middle East Strategy. To build such a strategy is the mission for the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Shanghai Jiaotong University (CMES@SJTU).

Building a creative peace plan with a constructive Chinese role for the Palestine-Israel conflict, monitoring US and EU interests in the region and their stance on China, and implementing public diplomacy initiatives are the three challenges and core research interests for CMES@SJTU.

CMES has already produced several crucial reports for Chinese government on above mentioned issues, and is leading several public diplomacy initiatives in the region. CMES is the first and only think tank in China that has a branch office in the Middle East (Dubai), and several liaison offices in the region.
