Unraveling the complex and fluctuating relationship between politics, society, and economy in the Global Era

Jean-Pierre Lehman (29 August 1945 – 21 December 2017), turned his interest in the intense and accelerated process of transformations that make Asia a continent of promises and challenges. He emphasized on the political role of all the actors in the global arena. The reading of his work is basic to follow the intense pace of changes in the contemporary world.

During his life dedicated to teaching, Jean-Pierre was an example of enormous human quality. Based in Laussane, Switzerland, Jean-Pierre was a distinguished member overseas of Bright Hong Kong. His extraordinary intellectual legacy and generosity are treasured for all those who had the privilege of knowing him. Thanks to the new technologies, many of his articles published in Forbes, South China Morning Post, The Straits Times, The Japan Times, The Globalist, Middle East Business Magazine & News, Financial Times, The Jakarta Post and The Financial Express, still available.
