East Asia program: Same face, new name

Over the last year, the Lowy Institute’s research team has grown with the addition of the West Asia program headed by Anthony Bubalo and the Myer Foundation Melanesia program headed by Jenny Hayward-Jones. This growth in numbers allows for the Asia & the Pacific program headed by me to be recast as the narrower East Asia program. The East Asia program will now focus exclusively on the Northeast Asian and Southeast Asian sub-regions of East Asia, the growing links between them, and the relevance of changes in these regions to Australia. Key areas of research will include great power relations and change in Northeast Asia, East Asian regionalism (with and without Australian participation) and Australia’s economic and strategic interests in East Asia.
