Research Statement

The Global Inquiries and Social Theory Research Group (GIST) will help shape the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities research identity by promoting basic research in sociology, anthropology, history and culture in the context of Vietnam and Asian countries. We hope to influence the conduct of Faculty research in a responsible and collective way, promoting the collaboration among those who are the members of the Faculty and those who are the subjects of research. We aim to promote research that ensure those who are subjects of the research will be the researchers and together the researchers have the main say in the formulation of research tools and what happens to knowledge created by and about them. The labour of knowledge creation will belong to the labourers and we believe that collaboration and skill- sharing is paramount in scientific research. Knowledge is shared by those who produce and control it. We also strictly adhere to the ethical rules in scientific research in general and TDTU policy for Academic Integrity in particular.
