US-China Today is a student-driven publication of the USC U.S.-China Institute. Like the Institute, the magazine focuses on the multidimensional and evolving U.S.-China relationship and on significant trends in contemporary China. The magazine offers coverage of and commentary on a wide range of political, economic, social, and cultural issues.

US-China Today is a non-partisan publication. We offer carefully reported feature stories that we work to make accurate, balanced, and compelling. In our commentary section, we seek to offer the views of scholars, journalists, businesspeople, agency and non-governmental specialists, and policy-makers. The views expressed in such essays are those of the authors and are not necessarily shared by the staff of US-China Today or the U.S.-China Institute.
