Institute of New Structural Economics at Peking University
The Institute of New Structural Economics at Peking University (INSE) is a pilot academic institute in China that aims at achieving the independent theoretical innovation of social sciences. Its predecessor, the Center for New Structural Economics (hereinafter referred to as the CNSE), was founded by Prof. Justin Yifu Lin, former World Bank Chief Economist and Senior Vice President, in December 2015, as one of China Top Think Tanks.
Drawing lessons from development experiences of China and other developing countries, INSE aims to serve as a leading academic institute and a world-class flagship think tank by pioneering NSE theoretical innovation, application and dissemination.
INSE facilitates NSE academic research, policy practice, talent cultivation, and international exchange, to empower the scholars, experts, students and government elites in developing countries who are committed to long-term economic development with NSE ideas, theories and instruments so that they can draw a road map to modernization that suits the characteristics of their own countries.
“Seeking knowledge from practice; guiding practice with knowledge; validating knowledge by achievement; integrating knowledge and achievement.” INSE seeks to integrate theoretical innovation with development practices. It holds that true knowledge must be validated by practice, and only true knowledge can benefit the mankind.
