Asia Studies Centre



The Asia Studies Centre attempts to provide an in-depth understanding of the structural shifts, regional complexities, and historic tensions that exist alongside the tremendous economic and social growth that traditionally characterize the “rise of Asia”. With some predicting that the region will account for 40% of global GDP by 2050, a post-Brexit Britain must develop a foreign policy posture for the region that navigates British economic interests and British cultural and political values on the one hand, while maintaining strong support for regional liberal democracies and international law on the other.
