It's been 10 years since Chinese President Xi Jinping first put forward the concept of "building a community with a shared future for mankind."
On March 20, 2023, experts from the Institute of Party History and Literature of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, think tanks and universities exchanged views and opinions at a symposium themed "Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Concept of a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind" held by the Institute for a Community with Shared Future at the Communication University of China in Beijing.
Jin Xin from the International Department of the CPC Central Committee said the forces pushing forward and against globalization are still locked in a fierce battle and that the focus should be how to put the "three major initiatives," namely the Global Security Initiative, Global Development Initiative and Global Civilization Initiative into practice.
The Global Civilization Initiative puts forward four initiatives: respect for the diversity of civilizations, advocating the common values of humanity, highly valuing the inheritance and innovation of civilizations and jointly advocating robust international people-to-people exchanges and cooperation.
The Institute for a Community with Shared Future (ICSF) is a Chinese think tank initiated by the Communication University of China on November 29, 2019. It aims to develop the notion of a community with a shared future for mankind from an academic perspective and research its global communication.
The center pools the strength of leading Chinese and foreign experts and researchers with governmental, academic and industrial backgrounds in China and abroad to create an international platform for academic dialogue on cultural exchange and integration and greater exchanges and mutual learning among civilizations.
