Zijin Media Think Tank

Zijin Media Think Tank is a non-profit organization founded in April 2015. Its mission is to provide up-to-date information and analysis on people’s livelihood issues and social mentality in order to propose actionable ideas for policy making concerning economic, social and cultural development as well as to develop more intellectual products to facilitate open dialogues between China and other cultures.

The think tank now consists of five research centers including the Center for Public Opinions and Social Mentality, Center for Internet and Media Development, Center for Social Risks and Public Policy, Center for Big Data and Social Computing and Center for Petition and Social Conflict. It sets out to combine the forces of the academia, government and media, to apply the innovative thinking of “Internet Plus” and big data analysis technology in conducting real-time tracking of public opinions and social mentality, to build early-warning mechanisms for social risks and to provide suggestions for policymakers to address controversial issues in society.

Since its foundation, Zijin Media Think Tank has been active in a wide range of areas including releasing a series of research reports such as the Survey on the Major Trend of 2015 Chinese Stock Market and the Report on the Chinese Citizen’s Economic Confidence Index (2015-2016), organizing academic activities such as the Symposium on the Evaluation and Management of New-Type Think Tanks in China and launching poverty alleviation and rural construction projects.
