As a form of social networking, China in Comparative Perspective Network (CCPN) has been holding a Chinese New Year party for CCPN members together with LSE staff, students and associates who are interested in China related studies, since 2009. It is also a way to express the organizers' gratitude to the members who have worked and are working for the CCPN.

After the CCPN 2010 party Dr Xiangqun Chang was invited to a Chinese New Year Party held by IER & HRM,  Department Management staff and students. After the party CCPN and IER & HRM had co-organized a few events.

The third party was given jointly with the Confucius Institute for Business London (CIBL), on the 3rd Feb 2011. It was the first of such events held for socialising and networking within LSE's China community on the festival occasion and at the School campus. Staff members of CCPN and CIBL along with students from the departments of Anthropology, Economics, Economic History, Finance, Government, Management, Law, Social policy. This page outlines some joint events (including events in which CCPN members played key roles) with CIBL from 2009 onwards.  

Since CCPN Director Dr Kent Deng has been appointed as the Co-Director of CIBL there will be more collaborations between the two organisations, e.g. the Chinese New Year's Party 2012 was held at the House of Parliament, by Load Wei, on the 23rd Jan 2012 (This event was by invitation only).
