More than ten years has past since CCAP was established.
The diligent work of the Center’s staff has been rewarding. Although CCAP has experienced major changes in its location and affiliations, with support and help from various leaders and individuals, the Center has established itself as a productive academic institution, which produces a large number of publications every year and makes increasingly significant policy impacts. The following are the highlights of some of these achievements for the last 6 years.
