Our Mission

The primary aim of the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy (CEACOP) is to promote and enhance the study of East Asian and Comparative Philosophy. Toward that end the center brings together core faculty members within the Department of Public Policy, who all have active research programs in East Asian and Comparative Ethics, Political Philosophy, Law, Religion, the Ethical Status of Non-human Animals, and Environmental Ethics. In addition, we invite scholars outside of City University, from Hong Kong, East Asia, and around the world, with similar interests to campus in order to share their research and exchange ideas. The center hosts or supports several major research projects and actively seeks additional projects and funding to continue to build and expand its ability to serve as a leading institution producing and supporting research in East Asian and Comparative Philosophy.
