The Asia Research Group comprises researchers from Asia and Europe, working on a range of approaches to the study of the comparative and international politics of the Asia-Pacific Region.
We meet regularly to discuss key publications in the field; to share experiences of fieldwork; to discuss contemporary issues; and to provide a supportive environment for Group members to present their research and receive feedback. The Group periodically produces reports on issues of interest in contemporary global politics, reflecting on the significance of key events for the Asia-Pacific region.
