21 March 2022: Announcement

In memory of our dear friend and colleague, GRADNAS has established the Aileen San Pablo Baviera Prize, to recognize impactful academic publications on Southeast Asia-China international relations.

The winner of the inaugural Prize is:

Alvin Camba (2021) How Chinese firms approach investment risk: strong leaders, cancellation, and pushback, Review of International Political Economy, DOI: 10.1080/09692290.2021.1947345

The Graduate Research and Development Network on Asian Security (GRADNAS) initiative aims to build an international network of scholars undertaking cutting-edge research on strategic and security issues in Asia. GRADNAS promotes Asian security research that effectively combines conceptual rigour and innovation with deep empirical analysis.


Convened by Professor Evelyn Goh and based at the Australian National University, this network includes established scholars from leading universities around the world, as well as advanced doctoral students and promising early career researchers in a series of programmes for training, exchange and research collaboration.

New dates TBA | The Australian National University, Canberra

The inaugural GRADNAS Methods CO-LAB will focus strongly on 'methods' understood as the range of inter-disciplinary qualitative approaches most suitable for studying Asian security topics. We will pay acute attention to how scholars can pose the most useful research questions for studying this region; and develop innovative approaches and effective research designs to investigate Asian cases and complexities. This inaugural School will be led by 5 GRADNAS senior faculty, and will accommodate up to 30 international PhD student and post-doctoral/early career participants.
