The Center for China & Globalization(CCG), an independent Chinese think tank known for its expertise in migration research, has established its academic reputation among international organizations. Building on its success in publishing the Chinese version of the World Migration Report 2013 for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), CCG continues to work on the 2015 report. In addition, IOM has authorized CCG to conduct two two-year researches, respectively on Chinese international migration and domestic migration.

IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. With 157 member states, a further 10 states holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants. CCG has a long-term cooperative relationship with IOM. The organizations have jointly published a series of study reports and held multiple forums on international talent mobility. On May 7, 2015, IOM convened the first meeting of its high level Migration Advisory Board (MAB) in Geneva. Dr. Wang was selected as one of the 13 international counselors and the only counselor from China.

In addition, CCG was commissioned to participate in the drafting of a World Bank study on China’s domestic migration and urbanization. As part of the project, CCG submitted a report on the backflow of overseas Chinese based on an extensive survey, which has received positive feedback.
