Harvard China Forum 2017 on Apr.21 to Apr.23

Founded in 1997, Harvard China Forum is North America’s leading and longest-running student-run conference on China. Dedicated to a constructive dialogue on the challenges, trends, and issues affecting China, the forum aims to engage leaders in business, academia, and politics in a discourse that will offer insight and generate new ideas. The annual Forum typically takes place at Harvard University each April. More than 1200 delegates and 100 speakers attended the forum in 2016, making it the largest of its kind.

Harvard China Forum was founded in 1997 as a magazine Harvard China Review, by then Harvard graduate students Zhang Ligang and Li Bo. Initially run by students at the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the magazine expanded its staff membership to other Harvard schools and eventually to academic institutions in Greater Boston, publishing both works of student staff writers and solicited articles from academics in the area. Harvard China Forum was launched partly as a publicity endeavor and partly to boost revenue for the magazine. As the conference gained more momentum, however, HCR leadership decided to focus instead on the increasingly popular Forum. In 2017, Harvard China Forum will be celebrating its 20th years anniversary as the leading student-run China conference in North America.
