In recent months the United States has been sending out warships on a number of freedom-of-navigation patrols in the South China Sea, and China’s response has been to build up its military presence.  Why is this happening, and what are the consequences if both sides continue to assert themselves?  Prof Zhang Baohui, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Centre for Asian Pacific Studies shares with us his insight on the current situation.

With their global vision and the passion to serve the community, a group of Lingnan students endeavour to materialise their plan to establish a social enterprise to improve livelihood of people living under poverty in the developing world.

New Publications

Asian economies today command much attention from scholars and practitioners.  Yet they continue to face crises and challenges: external shocks due to globalization, regional strife and conflicts, pressure for greater democracy, upgrading innovative capabilities amid slower growth, and environmental protection, just to name a few.  How Asian firms cope with these challenges and rise above them will make a difference in their growth prospect.

You can learn more about the least developments and events of the University through newsletters published by different academic and administrative departments.
