A&SS Distinguished Professors

We are honoured to have the following international scholars as Distinguished Professors (DP) in A&SS. The DPs are not only outstanding scholars in their own disciplines, but also friends of OUHK who are supportive and willing to provide help for the academic development of our University. They will provide consultancy on research, including helping faculty members to formulate ideas for grant proposals, and to give lectures during their visits.
