Summer Seminar on Livable Cities in Pacific Asia: Research Methods for Policy

During the month of June 2005 the Globalization Research Center and the
East-West Center will host a Summer Seminar on Livable Cities with a focus on
Pacific Asia.  This intensive training program will cover both methods of
analysis and substantive issues in making cities in the region more livable.
Perspectives from key fields, such as environmental management, development
studies, and the social and political dynamics of governance, will offer
insights into key population, urban policy and planning issues.  Peter Xenos of
the East-West Center and Mike Douglass at the University of Hawaii are the
co-coordinators for this seminar.

Further information and application forms can be found at:

The deadline for applications is January 20th 2005. All applications should be

The Summer Seminar is open to researchers and policy analysts in and outside of
government as well as advanced graduate students concerned with any of the
crucial dimensions of the management of mega-urban regions. Individuals who
