Congratulations to Prof Hyun Bang Shin on being awarded £33999 from the LSE Middle East Centre’s Kuwait Programme!

The funding will be used to help start a new research project in September 2019, which aims to analyse and compare how Asian cities have risen to become reference points for the development of cities in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. 

Commenting on the grant, Hyun said:

“I really appreciate the support of the LSE Middle East Centre for this new research project. I believe that this work will result in having a deeper and contextualised understanding of the emergent circulation of urbanism and capital as well as knowledge transfer within the Global South.”
