About the Programme

The Asia Programme addresses the growth, political development and increasing integration of the Asian economies with projects and expertise covering East, South East and South Asia. A key linking theme is the varied modes of development that these economies exhibit and the extent to which they can be regarded as comprising multiple routes to modernity and as such a real challenge to neoliberalism and general Western-centred approaches to development, regulation and economic management. This reflects a central concern of GPI and reinforces the links with other Programmes that are most evident in the collaborative projects on global power shifts, Asian regionalism, EU-Asian relations and the reform of global finance. In addition to these, the Asia Programme has a broad body of work on China (see GPI China) and on-going and developing national- and regional-scale projects.
