Bertram Lang

Bertram Lang is a political scientist, China specialist, and academic coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Centre for East Asian Studies (IZO) at Goethe University Frankfurt. Since June 2021, Bertram has also served as academic coordinator of the CEDITRAA project, where he takes a particular interest in Chinese cultural soft power efforts and their limitations in African countries. His broader expertise is in China’s foreign policy and its impact on international norms, with a focus on the non-profit sector, anti-corruption, and Europe-China relations. In his recently completed dissertation, he analyses the transnational politics of Chinese philanthropy from an institutionalist perspective and traces global diffusion processes of organisational logics and legitimacy standards beyond the state.
