Asian Pathways Research Lab

The Richard Charles Lee Asian Pathways Research Lab (APRL) is an initiative of the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, University of Toronto. The Lab’s mission is to produce innovative theoretical and methodological frameworks to understand human migrations and mobilities with a focus on Asian life histories and experiences. The APRL cultivates engaged qualitative research, student training, and public dialogue on migrations from Asia to Canada in the context of cross-cutting global themes. These themes include: Asian modernities, broadly conceived within East Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, capitalisms, diaspora and transnationalism, and urban life in global contexts. Each year the APRL offers essential training for undergraduate students to use qualitative methods to study the process of migration from, within and between Asian and Canada, with a particular focus on life-histories of Asian Canadians in the Greater Toronto Area.
