An online magazine of original and selectively syndicated reporting and commentary on China.
ChinaFile is an online magazine publishing, showcasing, and contributing to the best reporting and commentary on China published by Asia Society's Center on U.S.-China Relations. We seek to both meet and expand the appetites of expert and non-expert audiences who want to better understand China and to provide them with a visually stimulating, well-designed platform on which they can encounter voices and topics that tend to be out of the reach of general English-speaking readers.
Founded in 2011, ChinaFile places a premium on skillful storytelling, sensitivity to the news, and careful research, our original stories will pick-apart major issues that will be easily understood by a wide range of readers.
In the fast-paced world of online news, our team sifts through and presents a highly curated list of stories from both mainstream and more esoteric sources of China reporting. ChinaFile also publishes original reporting, opinion pieces, book reviews, interviews, photo essays, videos and translations of stories originally published in Chinese.
The ties between the U.S. and China have increased over the past several decades and the need has never been greater for deepened understanding of current events in the world’s most populous country and it's second largest economy.
