Michael Harris Bond

Visiting Chair Professor of Psychology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong S.A.R. China

Throughout his 42-year career in Hong Kong, the Canadian social psychologist, Michael Harris Bond, has struggled to craft and present a clear, strong case for the Mainstream to answer through his collaborative, cross-cultural explorations of both indigenous and imported cultural constructs. His books on social psychology across cultures and his current multi-cultural research have tried to introduce Chinese and other cultural logics using an integrated, pan-cultural model for understanding human interpersonal behavior. His ultimate concern is to apply our knowledge about cultural differences to improve our teaching, working and living across cultural lines. He is concerned about the future of our planet and its peoples.
