Research @Huma


During 2012, Huma’s research output comprised some 18 journal articles, books, book chapters and edited volumes. This was in addition to the 60+ seminars, lectures, workshops, book lunches and panel discussions we hosted.

Huma will continue with all these in 2013 and we hope to see you at our seminars/symposia/panel discussions/cyberspace this year, and thank you for your support in 2012.
