Research Snapshots on Asia and Asian Diaspora
Mobilizing Research on Asia and Asian Diaspora
The initiative aims to make key research findings related to Asia and Asian Diaspora by York scholars available to non-academic audiences.
In partnership with the Knowledge Mobilization Unit at York University, YCAR aims to make available to non-academic and non-specialist audiences the key research findings related to Asia and Asian Diaspora of York scholars. The initiative also has provided graduate students with opportunities to develop skills in writing research reports that are clear and accessible to readers outside the academy.
To date, the project has completed five research summaries and is near to finalizing two more. Links to the summaries can be found below and are also available on the searchable data base of research summaries on the ResearchImpact website.
