Summing up 2017 and looking forward to 2018
2017 has seen a number of exciting events and developments at the Centre. In January we moved into our new building and have during the year tried to make it a welcoming and vibrant space for all those interested in East and South-East Asia.

The year was dominated by all the events we organized as part of Lund University's 350 years jubilee . We for example organized an alumni event and invited three alumni who have made successful careers in academia, business, and civil society organizations. At the recent Nobel prize banquet, one of our other alumni, Malin Nilsson, was interviewed with regards to the Nobel Peace prize that this year was awarded to ICAN (the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons). Malin is the Secretary General for the Swedish section of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, one of the partner organizations of ICAN. You can see the interview (in Swedish) here, about 3:15:30 in to programme.

One of our researchers, Astrid Nilsson Norén, was awarded a grant to continue her research on civil society in Cambodia, and another researcher, Darcy Pan, has been awarded a grant that means she will start working on a project on big data in China at the Centre, see here.

We have not yet planned all our events for 2018 but we will get off to a good start by having Associate Professor Erik Mobrand from Graduate School of International Studies, Seoul National University here during January to mid-February. You can read our work plan for 2018 here.

In January we are also organizing an international conference assessing 40 years of reforms in China with speakers such as Justin Fu Lin, Peking University, who served as the Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the World Bank 2008-2012.

I wish you all a wonderful winter holiday and look forward to seeing you again soon!
