Ari Van Assche, full professor at HEC Montréal, Fellow and Principal Researcher of the CIRANO Global Economy theme, has been appointed head of the Economics and Trade axis of the CÉRIUM Chair in Asian and Indo-Pacific Studies.
The launch of CÉRIUM's new Chair in Asian and Indo-Pacific Studies, funded by the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec (MRIF), will take place on Thursday, November 9 from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
The event will be punctuated by a round table discussion on the challenges of implementing Indo-Pacific strategies for Quebec and Canada in a context of heightened diplomatic tensions with certain countries in the region. What is the role of university research? How can it facilitate mutual understanding, multilateral dialogue and bilateral agreements? Regional issues (strategic, economic, socio-cultural and political) will also be discussed, which will be of interest to those in charge of the three research axes and to the collaborators of CÉRIUM's new Chair in Asian and Indo-Pacific Studies.
