At Bopilao Theater Hall


The East Asia Inclusive Network marked its 5th anniversary. This year’s workshop was held in Taipei (for the second time), where we focused on topics such as socially disadvantaged communities and housing/welfare/employment issues of vulnerable populations. To grapple with these issues, we promote active exchange between scholars and professionals/volunteers.

Each Sub-center (Hong Kong SAR, Osaka and South Korea) introduced 3 to 6 people to join this workshop (for the host city Taipei, the number of participants is flexible).
