The Faculty aspires to be a world-leading source of social science research about Greater China, Asia, and the world. We have identified the following research clusters as areas of focus over the next 5-10 years: Contemporary China: social, political, and spatial transformation; Mental Wellness: from brain to society; and Cities 2050: urbanisation, mobility, and sustainability. We are building these clusters with the foundation of six multidisciplinary research centres that provide a platform for research interaction and collaboration among colleagues on campus and in the wider world In addition, we are developing our capacity in social science research methods.
