Through the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Advance Scholars (QES-AS) Scholarships program, CAPI and the UVic Faculty of Law and their partners in South and Southeast Asia are participating in activating a dynamic community of young global leaders around the world to conduct interdisciplinary research on innovative governance and justice strategies to mitigate the harsher effects of economic globalization in South and Southeast Asia (specifically Bhutan, Cambodia, India, and Thailand). 

The QES-AS program will bring thirteen advanced scholars whose work focuses on South and Southeast Asia to the University of Victoria to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad through cross-cultural exchanges encompassing international education, discovery and inquiry, and professional experiences. It will also send five Canadian post-doctorate early career scholars to the region to develop valuable experience and build skills and networks in Canada and South and Southeast Asia.

Objectives of the QES-AS program include:

  • Developing global citizens through enriched academic, professional, and cross-cultural experiences
  • Activating a new generation of enterprising leaders in Canada and around the world through facilitating lasting local and global community engagement
  • Enhancing collaborative capacity and deepen peer relationships among Queen Elizabeth Scholars to enrich the program experience and facilitate personal and professional growth

Sustainable Livelihoods and Climate Change Regulation: Asian Approaches

workshop | 4 June 2019 | Hanoi, Vietnam

While some livelihood activities are in harmony with nature, others are in competition with it. In some instances, people have to adapt or change their livelihoods because of the environmental impact; at others, people are deprived of the very basis of their livelihoods because of the irreversible changes in climate. It is this inherent link between livelihood activities and climate change that we hope to explore in this workshop. While exploring this linkage, our objective is to learn from Asian approaches to, and instances of, engaging with sustainable livelihoods and climate change regulation.
