New Year, New Opportunities

The Centre is happy to soon (1 February) announce its first two Ph.D. positions. We also, together with the Human Rights Division at the History Department, have a call out for a postdoctoral fellow with a focus on human rights in East and South-East Asia (deadline 12 February).

Other news include a summer course at the BA level on contemporary Chinese society (application period: 20 February - 16 March). The course received special funding and will be given in Swedish. We will also give two other BA level courses during the fall semester, one on international relations and one on Japanese society as well as a number of MA level courses on topics ranging from development studies, digital developments, to human rights (see further information on our web site).

As usual we have a number of interesting open lectures lined up during the spring, including one on the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in Myanmar.

As news about the coronavirus outbreak in China are spreading we wish all a healthy and safe 2020!
