Understanding Cultures

The WUN Understanding Cultures Global Challenge brings together scholars from the Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as other disciplines, to develop research into culture, and society, to address issues of relevance to policy-makers. Researchers are encouraged to explore the role of new technologies and new forms of knowledge exchange as an integral part of this Global Challenge.

This Global Challenge is also home to the WUN Global China Group.

The focus of the WUN Understanding Cultures Global Challenge in 2013-14 is on:

  • macroeconomic and social change;
  • migration and adaptability;
  • two-way understanding of China;
  • the ageing society;
  • global indigenous development.
