We are delighted to announce the inaugural GRADNAS Methods CO-LAB in 2020. This will be our Network’s flagship activity, bringing together the Senior Scholars Network (SSN) and the Emerging Scholars Network (ESN), as well as other international PhD students and post-doctoral scholars.

The 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.
