Institutional Member

Founded in 1911, The University of Hong Kong is a comprehensive research-intensive English language University which ranks 28th in the World and 2nd in Asia.


Research and teaching on public policy is spread throughout the University and focuses on ageing, behavioral health, civil society and NGOs, climate change, the economy, education, environment, food safety, housing, internet, media and culture, non-profit management, public administration, public health, social work, tourism, transport, urban planning, and water governance.



The University seeks to establish a world-leading public policy program that includes cutting-edge research and innovative teaching and learning, and that provides a platform for public engagement focused on novel solutions to local, regional, and global problems. The public policy program organizes public lectures, policy forums, seminars and workshops; has established a public engagement platform; and provides opportunities for visiting academics and practitioners to visit HKU.


Together with the University of Southern California, we will launch a joint Master of Global Public Policy, aimed at providing solutions to critical transboundary public policy issues, providing East-West perspectives on policy problems, and nurturing the next generation of policy entrepreneurs.
