The main objective of this project is to present a unique concept of the sinophone world based on interregional dialogue and provide a new angle on the global impact of the rise of China.
Political, economic, linguistic and sociological analyses will be presented to both Czech and EU politicians. The research team is strengthened by scholars from abroad, carrying out cross -cultural interdisciplinary field research in Taiwan, Russia, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Kyrgystan and in other regions and countries.
The infrastructure of the Research Centre will be modernized and three laboratories will be established within the project (Language, Computer analyses and Material culture laboratories). These will make it possible to better analyze and understand animosity between competition and cooperation processes and indentify current trends in migration activity between China and the outside world.
