Fostering relationships in the Asia-Pacific

Griffith Asia Institute fosters relationships in the Asia-Pacific through high level dialogues and workshops which are key to informing and influencing Australia's Asia-Pacific policies.


In October 2017, the Griffith Asia Institute hosted a workshop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on the theme of Contemporary Research Challenges in South East Asia. The workshop was for early career researchers and PhD students working on the region to build collaborative linkages and research capacity in both Australia and Cambodia within their discipline. The workshop addressed a diversity of topics in the region including the political economy of South East Asia; research challenges in transitional settings; governance and foreign policy issues; rule of law and justice in South East Asia; regional environmental and transboundary governance; and human security. The short essays included in this collection are a sample of the research presented at the workshop which provided established scholars and early career researchers with an opportunity to seek feedback, develop their research further and to discuss future possibilities for collaboration and publication.
