We are pleased to present a speaker event on “The Evolving Landscape of Think Tanks in Hong Kong in Global Context” co-hosted by the alumni associations of Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton and Yale. While a very recent phenomenon in Hong Kong, think tanks play an increasingly important role in policy-making, civic education and community engagement. This seminar will give an overview of think tank development in Hong Kong in global context, and do a deep dive into the research and advocacy efforts of a think tank using the Our Hong Kong Foundation Arts Innovation team as an example. Please find the details of the event below. We are also attaching the event flyer for your kind reference.
