Working Paper Series

Working Paper Series (Previously known as Occasional Paper Series)

The LEWI Working Paper Series is an endeavour of LEWI to foster dialogues among institutions and scholars in the field of East-West studies.

LEWI’s Working Paper Series serves as a forum for the speedy and informal exchange of ideas as scholars and academic institutions attempt to grapple with issues of an inter-cultural and global nature.

Circulation of this series is free of charge. Feedback should be addressed directly to authors. Abstracts and full text of papers (please click for full text) can be downloaded from the LEWI web page.
