The Third South South Forum on Sustainability (July 2016)



The Cultural Studies Department was one of the key organizers of the first and second South-South Forum on Sustainability held in 2011 (in Lingnan University) and 2012 (in Southwest University). The third Forum will be held in Lingnan University on July 23-28, 2016. About 30 scholars from Latin America, Europe and Asia as well as from the Greater China region will speak and debate issues on Latin America, Asia, regional integration, financial capital crisis, trajectory of developing countries, agrarian question, architecture/urbanism, and visions for the future. The Forum builds important cross-border relationships for intellectual exchanges and collaborations.
