This network center was established as an institute of Graduate Special Research Projects in 2005, funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education, Japan Society for Promotion of Science and other outside organizations. Our research – “Socio-political Survey of the Chinese Communist Party” has filed its mid-term report to the Type A Scientific Research Grant Programs (FY 2007-09, ID number: 19252003). While grasping the CCP, which is the most important core of contemporary Chinese politics, we aim to understand this political organization from a political sociological perspective by taking a empirical approach. In carrying out the “Socio- political Survey of the Chinese Communist Party—Zhongnanhai Research Phase 2” under the umbrella of the Type A Scientific Research Grant Programs (FY2010 – 2013, ID number 23252004), we aim to elaborate on the reality of contemporary China through a comprehensive empirical research of the origin of Chinese politics, ranging from power structure, institutional organizations to the party’s social images.
 If the NIHU project to promote contemporary Chinese area studies also aims to expand research networks among different institutions, then this center could indeed be a vanguard model for such attempt. The broader the research topic gets, the more difficult it becomes for a single researcher or institute to carry out the tasks. Rallying incumbent researchers in this field from Waseda, Keio, University of Tokyo, Kobe, Hitotsubashi and etc, the Zhongnanhai Project is a network wide one that takes up a complicated theme. Thus, the center’s research activities fit well with the project goal. As a member of the program, the center hopes to further collaborate with other centers while maintaining and improving its own originality. This would indeed entail significant contribution to the contemporary Chinese area studies.
