Legation Quarter is dedicated to helping people learn about international affairs events happening around Beijing, and to building a community of people interested in attending them and discussing the questions they raise. Distributed every week to subscribers, the Legation Quarter newsletter is a compilation of all of the international affairs events happening that week in Beijing and includes both publicly listed events and events that the organizations we work with invite subscribers to attend. Please click here to see a sample of the newsletter and here to subscribe.
Legation Quarter is a community service for the Beijing international affairs community and we work with a number of international think tanks, university centers, non-profit organizations, and professional associations to distribute event information and announcements to subscribers. The project takes its name from the historic Beijing Legation Quarter (东交民巷) and is re-imagined as an inclusive community of expatriates and Chinese nationals interested in international affairs. Because of its history, the Legation Quarter is also a symbol of China’s complex and often ambiguous relationship with foreign powers. We’re dedicated to exploring those ambiguities, and to building an inclusive and engaging community that reflects a diverse range of views on international affairs.
We regularly list events hosted by the following organizations*:
American Chamber of Commerce in China
Beijing Energy Network
Beijing International Society
Brookings-Tsinghua Center for Public Policy
Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy
