Dr Yujing Fun
  • Dr. Fun’s main field of specialty is in the dynamics of power, with a particular focus on crime and deviance in societies, institutions and systems. This work tends to culminate into insights and perspectives on white-collar crime and abuses of power at various scales of social relations and structures. His passion for teaching is matched by his work in social justice, sociological theory, and comparative studies.


    Dr. Fun’s contributions to the field include his book “Cloaking White-Collar Crime in Hong Kong’s Property Sector,” and publications that address critical issues such as medical corruption and government crime in China.


    His research experience extends to projects on simulated societies, elderly ex-offender care, and youth gangs, demonstrating his diverse interests and ability to address complex social issues. Dr. Fun has taught courses in advanced criminological theory and social problems in China at various higher educational institutions in Hong Kong.
