No expertise comes without constant doubt and a willingness to challenge established truths. Chinoiresie represents our attempt to question some of today’s understandings and certainties about China. It blends the image of a ‘chinoiserie’—a foreign interpretation and imitation of Chinese artistic traditions, a term that over time has come to assume the meaning of a clichè, a stereotypical view of China—with the concept of ‘heresy’—an unorthodox view aimed at challenging a given truth.

The Made in China Journal is an open access quarterly on Chinese labour, civil society, and rights. In recent years, the Chinese labour movement has witnessed significant developments, not only with the occurrence of some of the largest strikes in decades but also the emergence of increasingly serious challenges for workers and activists. At the same time, the Chinese Communist Party has ramped up its efforts to reshape the landscape of civil society and stifle political and social activism. The Journal stems from the belief that these transformations call for more serious analysis from both scholars and practitioners in a format that can facilitate critical engagement with a broader international audience interested in forging international solidarity.
