Centre for Chinese Family Studies
The Centre for Chinese Family Studies aims to be a cross-disciplinary and cross-regional academic organization with a focus on studying families of Chinese descent. Our members conduct research not only among families who originated and reside in Chinese societies (e.g. mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan), but also among families who have migrated between Chinese societies (e.g. from mainland China to Hong Kong) or from Chinese to non-Chinese societies (e.g., to the United States). Our goal is to establish a platform for promoting empirical investigations and intellectual exchanges among scholars concerned about the well-being of families of Chinese descent, and also for disseminating such knowledge to the general public.
