Academic leader launches French platform

The Chinese Social Sciences Network,, starts its French-language version in Beijing, Jan 15, 2013.


The Chinese Social Sciences Network (CSSN) launched a French-language platform in Beijing on Tuesday, one year after starting an English version of the website.

The site, organized by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, aims to introduce theories and research results from Chinese social science scholars to French readers, and facilitate people’s understanding of Chinese society and culture, said Zhou Suyuan, editor-in-chief of CSSN.

Professor Wang Kun from Beijing Foreign Studies University said CSSN draws on the strengths from its broad academic networking to provide “rigorous, reliable and in-depth analysis of China.”

The website,, includes news from China and around the world, as well as photos, and opinion.

Gao Xiang, deputy secretary-general of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said some Western media demonize China’s increasing development and CSSN wants to introduce a “real China” to increase China’s voice in the international academic community.

CSSN also plans to offer versions in other languages in the future, according to Zhou.
