a) Central focus of theme:
The Institute brought together twelve leading feminist scholars from China to explore feminist research and teaching initiatives in higher education in Canada and China. It provided a platform for involved feminist scholars to discuss the path, process, and future prospect of the development of women's studies in Canada and China. The exchange and discussion allowed both sides to further develop collaborative undertakings that addressed mutual interest and learning.

b) International scholarly/scientific significance:
This initiative was based upon years of fruitful collaboration between feminist scholars at the University of Toronto and several major universities in China. It provided rare opportunities for cross-cultural comparison, dialogue, and mutual learning. For the China side, the academic extended network facilitated institutional capacity building and ensured success in dissemination of the results. Such event also enhanced emphasis and effort of University of Toronto on cultural diversity in curriculum.
