Oxfam Visiting Scholar Programme, USC

This project responds to Oxfam's vision of a "World without Poverty" and the strategy of "Bring Oxfam to China, Bring China to Oxfam", and supports the Universities Service Centre for China Studies (USC) by inviting mainland and overseas scholars from the fields of poverty reduction and sustainable social development to discuss possible solutions to social development problems, such as rural poverty, sustainable development, women's rights and children's education, from an academic perspective. The project also aims to increase the Hong Kong public's understanding of contemporary China, and to encourage their participation in anti-poverty campaigns through academic events such as lunch seminars, international forums, film screenings and other events related to Chinese society. All visiting scholars are invited to give seminars or talks during their stay.
