What We Do


Weekly articles will be published along with a weekly broadcast section on our social media pages, in an attempt to provide other CityU students with knowledge of current events around the world, which will cover many fields of study at the university.


The research team will be producing comprehensive research reports revolving around a central theme. Sections in the report will cover various sub-topics within International Studies such as bilateral relations, global economics, human rights, security, and the environment.


We are thriving to reach out to individuals within Hong Kong with notable talent and achievement within the field of International Affairs and invite them to share their experience and knowledge, hoping to enhance the existing learning process of students and career planning for students.
