The Centre on Asia and Globalisation (CAG) was established at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore, in 2006. The Centre is dedicated to conducting in-depth research on developments in the Asia-Pacific and beyond. CAG’s mission is to provide accurate, independent, and high-quality analysis on issues of regional and global significance for academia, decision-makers, commentators, and the general public.
The Centre’s research agenda is focused on two broad areas: the prospects of regional and global order; and the future of economic globalisation. Current projects include the future of regional order in Southeast Asia, the interplay between regional orders and global order, China-India relations, China’s arrival on the global stage, connectivity in continental and maritime Asia, Asia in the world economy, and the future of trade and financial globalisation.
Since the Centre’s establishment, it has developed collaborative networks and relationships with research institutes in Australia, China, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, the UK, and the United States as well as other countries in Europe and Southeast Asia. Through these collaborations, CAG aims to provide opportunities to facilitate constructive and substantive exchanges among leading experts on vital issues of international politics.
