The cornerstone of the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre is our research excellence. Scholars working on Southeast Asia specialise in an extraordinary range of disciplines across the spectrum, from history to law and political science, and from agriculture to medicine and veterinary science.
The breadth of disciplinary focus is matched by the spectrum of research topics studied at Sydney, which range from human rights and social movements to health and natural resource management, to linguistics and literature, among others.
We support research about Southeast Asia in a number of ways:
showcasing University of Sydney academics’ work in the region;
supporting disciplinary experts with an interest in Southeast Asia;
bringing academics and practitioners together to generate new research opportunities.
