Dr. Ron Holzhacker in Southeast Asia for recruiting PhD students on Governance and Sustainable Society 3
I have attached some pictures from my stay here. When I first arrived last weekend, my kind and energetic host from the international relations department, Muhadi Sugiono, took me to the nearby Borobudur temple at sundown. This was a very dramatic time to view this temple in the countryside surrounded by mountains. The other picture was from an early morning game of badminton at the campus sports center, extremely competitive, with game points that went beyond 21 points, that ended in a very diplomatic and hard to achieve tie 1-1 in games. I brought the rather battered shuttle with me to the lecture, and mentioned that I was involved in a process of 'shuttle' diplomacy in the early, cool hours of the morning prior to the lecture! Tonight we gather for dinner with our many RUG alumni from across the city.'

In my visit to Vietnam, one of the objectives was to meet with existing faculty members interested in joining our new Globalisation Studies Groningen PhD research hub on governance and sustainable society. In all, it looks like 8-10 potential candidates will be applying for consideration of admission to various faculties at RUG. I cam away from Can Tho very impressesd with the warmth and openness of the scholars I met, and look forward to getting to know them even better in the coming years.
