Don't Miss Out!
Mainstream media outlets don’t always cover the most pressing issues or tell the full story. The Asia Society’s Center of U.S.-China Relations recognizes this and has created an online publication called Chinafile to inform people around the world about the latest news in Chinese politics, business, healthcare and more. Chinafile is more than just a typical online newspaper. In addition to the articles written by accomplished journalists and scholars, site visitors can engage in a complete multimedia experience by watching videos, viewing photo galleries, and listening to podcasts. The ultimate goal of Chinafile is to provide the audience with a complete and unbiased look into the the latest news in China.

Gain a Fresh Perspective
Since 9/11, people tend to lump all Muslims together under one negative stereotype. As a result, citizens walk around with unjustifiable hatred and fear towards Islam and the people who practice the religion. In an effort to combat this prejudice and ignorance, the Asia Society put together the “Creative Voices of Muslim Asia” initiative. This project gives Muslim artists the chance to tell their stories and share the truth about their religion and culture through art, music, dance and more.
It’s time to gain a fresh perspective on Islam and the Muslim community.
