In this role he is responsible for supervising the work of the centers, organizing events such as seminars and workshops, conducting annual meetings and helping to develop programs.

His main research interests are in labor movements, migrant workers, identity politics and the informal economy.

For the AsiaGiobal Fellows program, Dr Juliawan will conduct a research on the rise of migrant workers' political agency in Hong Kong . Despite their lowly backgrounds and precarious working conditions, migrant workers have emerged as a significant force in Hong Kong's vibrant civil society, appropriating a sense of citizenship in a foreign land.
