Doctoral Student Policy Studies Seminar Series



The Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) and Graduate School (GS) are co-organizing Doctoral Student Policy Studies Seminars which constitute a series of informal lunchtime talks related to local and global research topics. The seminar series provides an opportunity for the presenters to share their research and findings as to gain some insight on the topics of policy study. It also provides a platform for the community who are interested in entering the discussion on topics for future research.

The upcoming seminars will commence with topics in the diversity field. We welcome Lingnan community, including faculty members, students and practitioners to join the event on-site or online (via zoom).
