All other program components such as methodology training, regional networking, the graduate program, the alumni program and knowledge transfer are closely linked with the research core (more ... ). Research in this project focuses on three topics:

1. Democratization and institutional change in SE Asia
2. Beyond Occidentalism: Concepts of the West in Asia
