Wen-Ching Ting is a doctoral researcher in migration studies at the School of Global studies. Her research project ‘Struggling in between: the Everyday Practices of Weaving Shan Home Territory along the Thai-Burma border’ focuses on the displaced Shan migrants’ home-making in limbo. This research is supported by the Government Scholarship for Study Abroad (GSSA), Taiwan and the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange.

She completed a BA in Economics at National Taiwan University (1996), and an MA in Development Studies at the University of Manchester (2003), with a dissertation entitled ‘The Operational Mechanism of NGOs Providing Humanitarian Assistance in a Complex Eco-Political Context: The Case of Mae La Camp in Tak on the Thai- Burmese Border.’ In this research, she explored the issue of relief-development and the dilemmas of humanitarian aid. Her regional focus is mainly on Southeast Asia, due to her previous work experiences with NGOs in Thailand, Cambodia and north India.
