Discover how UVic is connected to the world through research led by Canadian students in partnership with organizations across the Asia- Pacific region. Recently returned interns will share stories from diverse projects, including: soundscapes and music from the Karenni Social Development Centre in Northern Thailand, participatory research in action in India and projects completed with refugee youth in Malaysia. Also highlighted will be new research by incoming scholars from Bhutan and Cambodia. Come and learn about the power of community-based research and what happens when students get out of the classroom and into the field.
