The National Ethnic Affairs Commission of the People's Republic of China, formerly translated as State Ethnic Affairs Commission, is a commission under the United Front Work Department responsible for relations between the Chinese government and ethnic minorities in China which includes implementation of the policies of the CPC and theories on nationality research and national education. It also supervises the implementation - and monitors the performance - of regional national autonomy systems and the handling of matters related to the protection of rights and interests of minority nationalities. Prior to 2018, the NEAC was a de jure cabinet-level executive department of the State Council of the People's Republic of China.
In 2018, the NEAC was officially placed under the direct leadership of the United Front Work Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.
In 2020 a Han Chinese was named director of the State Ethnic Affairs Commission for the first time since 1954.
