Chinese University of Hong Kong

As most of the Chung brothers were born and educated in Hong Kong, CUHK’s vice chancellor asked the Philomathia Foundation to assist with the establishment of the university’s Research Centre for Human Values. The result was the creation of a Post-Doctoral Research Associate position to study inheritance, families and the market in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain; and various forums and symposia on topics such as human values and intergenerational justice.
