Why "Big Data China" Is Needed Now More Than Ever: A Conversation

In this video short, Scott Rozelle, SCCEI Co-Director sits down with Scott Kennedy, CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business, to discuss Big Data China, a new project aimed at bridging the gap between cutting-edge academic research on China and the Washington policy community.

Earlier this year the Stanford Center on China's Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) joined the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) to launch Big Data China, a new project aimed at bridging the gap between cutting-edge academic research on China and the Washington policy community. Since the launch of the collaboration, SCCEI and CSIS have hosted a number of featured events, organized briefing sessions for academics to speak directly with policy makers,  launched a new project website, and much more.

We just don’t understand China — if we understood China better, we could make better policy decisions.

The Big Data China website features regular multimedia analysis with high-quality data that explores important trends in China’s economy and society. In the newest video release, Scott Rozelle, SCCEI Co-Director, and Scott Kennedy, CSIS Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics, sit down to discuss why the Big Data China collaboration is needed now, more than ever. As Scott Rozelle puts it, "we just don’t understand China — if we understood China better, we could make better policy decisions." This collaboration aims to reduce the current gap between academia and Washington by identifying and highlighting the policy implications of cutting-edge scholarly work on China and presenting it directly to the policy community.
