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.
