LEWI is affiliated with Hong Kong Baptist University, a government-funded university with a Christian heritage. LEWI aims at fostering research in East-West studies and cultivating collaborative scholarships between the East and West. As the pace of globalization intensifies and intercultural, interethnic, and interreligious encounters accelerate, the work of LEWI has manifested itself in a significant manner in recent years. With Hong Kong as its base, LEWI aspires to become a global leader in multidisciplinary and cross-cultural studies through continuous academic interactions with universities from around the world.
