The theme of the conference is “Philanthropy in the Age of Covid-19: Asian and Global Perspectives”. The conference will focus on current developments and challenges facing the philanthropic sphere in the contemporary political and socio-economic climate, with particular emphasis on the unprecedented challenges brought about by the global COVID-19 pandemic and the urgent need for Governments, charities and NGOs to step up to fill the growing needs of the most vulnerable members of society. The conveners of the conference (Richard Nolan (York), Tang Hang Wu (SMU), Yip Man (SMU) and Ying Liew (Melbourne)) plan to publish a selection of the papers presented at the conferences.

The conference conveners are particularly keen to hear from Asian, women and young scholars in the field.
