      Sharing & Experiences

      The institute provides good opportunities for me to reflect on my own intellectual puzzles generated from everyday empirical encounters and enrich my analytical perspective on the issues. It also cultivates an environment for close and timely discussions between students and supervisors. Moreover, there’re plenty occasions for students to meet and interact with established or junior scholars who are working on related topics from different disciplines and training backgrounds.
