Regional connectivityRegional connectivity

As the fastest growing economic region in the world, Asia is undergoing huge change on multiple fronts. The region's increasingly ambitious infrastructure developments have been drawn to the forefront of regional development, as epitomised with the development of new policies such as China's 'Belt and Road Initiative', the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, India's 'Go East', and Taiwan's 'New Southbound Policy'. Our researchers at the Asia Research Institute look at how greater increased connectivity will shape things to come in the region.

Some of the areas touched upon in our research include the innovation and entrepreneurship that takes place in organisations, businesses and education.

Identity and rightsIdentity and rights

With more than half the world's population in Asia, and 50 percent of those numbers being in two of the most populous states on Earth (India and China), it is important to understand the diverse identities within state borders, and the context in which they exist (for example, whether they are protected or not). Our research includes topics such as gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity and representation in the media.
