About HKSI


Hosted by the Department of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia, the Hong Kong Studies Initiative (HKSI) is devoted to promoting the teaching and research of this most-improbable metropolis, both as an extraordinary Chinese city and as a spectacular international and transnational hub. Our goal is to facilitate the creation and transmission of knowledge about the past and present of Hong Kong, both by fostering academic research and dialogue as well as by building bridges between academia and the community.
