Based on the profound culture of Beijing, a city rich in traditions, Beijing Forum aims to introduce world-class academic achievements and enhance research in humanities and social sciences, so as to promote academic development in the whole world, and contribute to the progress of humankind.
Beijing Forum provides a very good opportunity for eastern and western cultures to share with and complement each other, disregarding their disparities and differences in terms of history, culture, social system and developing stage.
