2018 Public Policy Summer School and Training Camp held in EdUHK
Close to 200 students from fourteen mainland universities participated in the 2018 Public Policy Summer School at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) from 21 July to 3 August 2018. Hosted by the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS), this summer school offered a variety of attractive activities including research seminars, hands-on workshops, study tours, excursion, and a taste of local cuisine. Participants were undergraduate as well as postgraduate students from key universities on the mainland, including Shandong University, Xi’an Jiaotong University, Central South University, and Ocean University of China. A feedback survey suggests very high level of satisfaction of participants, who appreciated the summer school for the precious opportunity to experience a very new mode of public policy education at EdUHK. This summer school also witnessed the signing of MoUs between APS, and School of Political Science and Public Administration of Shandong University, and School of Law and Political Science of the Ocean University of China, respectively.
Aside from the summer school participated by students, APS also organized a summer training camp on cutting-edge theories and research methods in public policy. Attended by more than 80 young scholars from mainland China, Taiwan, Canada, Germany, and Singapore, this training camp provides intensive research training to early-career scholars and research postgraduate students. A panel of distinguished scholars, including Anthony B.L. Cheung, Richard Walker, Giliberto Capano, M Ramesh, Chou Kee-lee, Darryl Jarvis, and Eduardo Araral lectured the camp and offered academic consultation.
