ANNOUNCEMENTS

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Xinjiang Documentation Project. Based at the Institute of Asian Research in UBC's School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, this multi-disciplinary research project aims to document and highlight the detention of Uyghurs and other minorities in Xinjiang.

The Centre for India and South Asia Research (CISAR) is proud to announce the release of its 2019-2020 Annual Report. CISAR promotes interdisciplinary research related to South Asia, disseminating knowledge through seminars, lectures, and conferences. The Centre also seeks to create and promote institutional and scholar-to-scholar linkages between UBC and institutions in South Asia and beyond

It has become increasingly clear that Canada's relationship with China is experiencing unprecedented strain. Will a shift in Canada's approach be enough to mitigate the bilateral conflict, or do our country's leaders need to adopt a new strategy? Join experts from across the country, including SPPGA Professor Paul Evans, as they virtually discuss their priorities for a re-imagined approach to Canada-China relations.

Watch the webinar here.
