The Summer Institute encourages the application of PhD students conducting theoretical and empirical research on issues related to regional integration in Asia from various aspects, including but not limited to politics, security, human security, economics, sociology, culture, and environment. The Institute will provide a supportive environment where students can share their ideas, receive feedback on their research projects, and offer constructive and critical advice to other participants. The seven-day program will also include advice on practical matters such as conducting fieldwork. The program will include a number of panels, providing students the opportunity to present their work with the aim to potentially publish the best papers in the Asian Regional Integration Review published by GIARI.
