Press Enquiries

We look forward to your enquiry! The experts of Mercator Institute for China Studies will gladly answer your enquiries relating to China (politics, economics, society, media, innovation and environment).

They give their views on current news and are available for informal background discussions or as authors for guest contributions.


The Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) have made it their mission to impart knowledge from their observations and analysis of China with the public. For this we release the "MERICS China Update". The newsletter summarises all important developments of the last two weeks.

A further regular publication is the "MERICS China Monitor" where we analyse important current incidents and mid-term trends as well as formulate concrete recommendations for decision-makers.
You can subscribe to both publications here free of charge. 
We thank you for your interest and always very much appreciate suggestions for improving our offers.
