International conference on protecting the weak

International conference on protecting the weak

The Faculty of Social Sciences, the China Economic Research Programme and the Pan Sutong Shanghai-Hong Kong Economic Policy Research Centre of Lingnan University jointly organised the two-day international conference “Protecting the Weak – Concepts and East Asian Evidence” with the Interdisciplinary Centre for East Asian Studies of Goethe University in Germany from 7 to 8 October.

 

The conference, held on the campus of Lingnan University, explored a wide range of issues and policies that are related to the status of the "weak" and how their protection is institutionalised. Scholars from Lingnan, other local institutions and various world regions gathered in the conference to share their research findings and promote international cooperation on their common research interests.
