Academics in the School target their research to leading journals using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches. Many of our staff are particularly interested in developments in the Asia-Pacific region. The School organises an exciting Visitors program that attracts leading scholars from around the world and a seminar series that showcases latest development in a variety of fields. Our aim is to maintain an intellectually stimulating and supportive research culture.
