Observatory for the study of Philanthropy and the Neighbourhood 公益慈善研究基地
The Urban Research Group has established a new collaborative research initiative with the School of Philanthropy at Sun Yat-sen University. The Observatory for the study of Philanthropy and the Neighbourhood will establish research bases at SYSU in Guangzhou and at the City University Shenzhen Campus. Over the coming year, the focus will be on jointly organized seminars and conferences to lay the foundations for external funding support for the Observatory. The agreement was signed by Professor ZHU Jiangang and Professor Ray Forrest.
This is an exciting opportunity to build on our theoretical and policy interest and expertise on the social life of urban neighbourhoods. The collaboration with Sun Yat-sen`s School of Philanthropy, a leading Mainland university, promises cutting-edge research on neighbourhood change, neighbourhood institutions and neighbourhood practices in China's fast moving urban environments.
