About Engaging with Viet Nam
The Engaging with Viet Nam initiative was founded in 2009 by Dr. Phan Le Ha and hosted by Monash University, Australia. Dr. Phan is now a professor in the College of Education, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM), and UHM has become the new home for the initiative.
The Engaging with Viet Nam conference has brought together scholars, researchers, policy makers, diplomatic officials and the general public to collaboratively engage with knowledge production and scholarship building related to Viet Nam.
