Mission/Vision

For the first time in history, half of the population in Asia are now urban residents. To be more precise, these population interconnects multiple cities through their economic activities and livelihoods, formulating an unprecedented scale of urban sphere coined as “Mega-region”. This is a geographical space which could become both the growth engine of the entire region and also where deep social cleavages and conflicts could arouse. Our module, the research group is, therefore, establishing a research hub to identify key issues that could be best addressed with the framework of a “Mega-Region” and to formulate an education hub for like-minded students.
