About RCSD:
The Regional Center for Social Science and Sustainable Development (RCSD) was established in 1998 in response to the need for an integration of social science and natural science knowledge in gaining a better understanding of sustainable development in the upper mainland Southeast Asia. It strives to become a regional center for sustainable development linking graduate training and research to development policy and practice by drawing upon the three-decade of multidisciplinary research experience at Chiang Mai University. Since 2001, RCSD has embarked on the Program for Knowledge and Educational Enhancement in the Mekong Region-PKEEMR (year 2001-2007), supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. PKEEMR aims to promote and support the establishment of networks among scholars, NGOs and researchers in the Mekong region, and significantly develop the research capacity for young researchers. The PKEEMR activities include non-degree research fellowships, visiting scholar fellowships, inter-university collaborative workshops, regional perspective lecture series, international conference, faculty staff exchange, collaborative research and publications.
