University of Nottingham Malaysia

Asia Research Institute Malaysia


The Asia Research Institute Malaysia is part of our university’s commitment to global policy and engagement  

The University of Nottingham's Asia Research Institute transcends geographical and disciplinary boundaries by linking up academic staff and postgraduates working across all three of our campuses in Malaysia, UK and China. Our work is extremely broad, but focuses on themes relevant to the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger (goal 2), Gender Equality (goal 5), Reduced Inequality (goal 10), Sustainable Cities and Communities (goal 11), Responsible Consumption and Production (goal 12), Life on Land (goal 15), and Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions (goal 16). 


Through a range of social media campaigns, policy briefs, events, and workshops we seek to : 

  • connect people who are interested in Asia-Pacific issues 
  • contribute perspectives from the humanities and social sciences to enhance research impact 


Our experts, based in Malaysia, as well as on our UK and China campuses, have long-standing engagements with practitioners and partners in the region, as well as those agencies and organisations with interests in Asia. All of these experts are interested in working with policymakers, with the media, with industry and with other researchers on developing opportunities and aim to increase dialogue with, and to make an impact on, important debates within the region.  

An Asia Expertise Guide is your gateway to approximately 200 University of Nottingham academics whose world-leading research and specialist knowledge is focused on the major challenges and opportunities in Asia.
