The Research Base of Language Strategy and Policy was founded in April 2016. It closely follows the needs of national strategy and the development of Beijing as the capital of China. With its focus on interdisciplinarity and technological application, the base is targeted at the language use on such non-traditional security issues as political security, cultural security, public opinion security, educational security, as well as language information processing. It has established cooperative relationships with many world-class universities and colleges home and abroad—like the University of Birmingham and the City University of Hong Kong—on research into computational linguistics, corpus linguistics, etc.
The chief expert of the Base is Professor Fang Jiancheng.
