FLIA at a Glance
FLIA initiates academic research projects on various important topics involving law and international affairs. For example, we conducted some research projects on NGO laws and global governance. The research project "A Study on the 'Go Out' Policy System for Chinese Social Organizations" was sponsored by the Ministry of Civil Affairs of People's Republic of China. Among the received 422 proposals, not only FLIA was the only foreign institution out of the 70 approved, but also the research report was awarded a third prize together with reports prepared by the China University for Politics and Law, and the Ministry of Civil Affairs Centre for Policy Research.
