The Hong Kong Research Hub

We aim to build a research network in South-East Asia to complement and collaborate with existing initiatives in Hong Kong and elsewhere in the world. 

What is The Hong Kong Research Hub?

The Hong Kong Research Hub is affiliated with Nanyang Technological University at Singapore. We aim to build a research network in South-East Asia to complement and collaborate with existing initiatives in Hong Kong and elsewhere in the world.

Our Research

For decades, Hong Kong has held a place of historical, geopolitical, economic, cultural and environmental interests to South-East Asia and the wider world. The rapid and transformational changes that Hong Kong continues to undergo provide fresh opportunities to reassess and reflect upon the city, in ways that illuminate broader phenomena and global trends.

Our Activities

The hub hosts seminar series and other scholarly events that would be of interest to both academics and non-academics, the scope of which is intended to be broadly interdisciplinary, welcoming a range of methodologies and areas of study which shed new light on Hong Kong’s past, present and future.
