Asia Research Center for Migration (ARCM), Chulalongkorn University

The Asian Research Center for Migration (ARCM), based in the Institute of Asian Studies in Chulalongkorn University, is an internationally recognised center of excellence in social science research. Initially founded in 1987 as the Indochinese Refugee Information Center, the Center was established with the mission of conducting research on the flows of refugees from Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries seeking asylum in Thailand. After the Indochinese refugee crisis had abated in Thailand and the refugee camps were closed under the Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Center began to conduct research on new refugee situations that had begun to emerge in Southeast Asia. In recognition of this newly broadened research focus, the Center was reconstituted as the Asian Research Center for Migration in 1995.

Since then, we have significantly expanded our thematic areas and now include projects on all forms of international migration in Southeast Asia, with a particular emphasis on Thailand as a sending, receiving and transit country.

ARCM was recognized as a Chulalongkorn University Center of Excellence in 2007. Our core team is drawn from the University’s academic community, including both Thai and non-Thai experts with experience and technical back-up in various relevant fields, including sociology and anthropology, political science, economics, human geography and law.

Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore

Since it was established in 2001 under the directorship of Tony Reid, ARI has matured into one of the world’s foremost research centres on Asia. The Institute brings together scholars working across the social sciences and humanities, forming a vital space for Asia-focused cross-disciplinary research collaboration. The location of ARI at NUS, one of the Asia-Pacific region’s premier universities, and of NUS itself in Singapore – a long established hub for movements of people and ideas – provides us with an incomparable institutional and geographical home for research on Asia.

ARI’s modus operandi is to bring the finest scholars, both early career and more established, to Singapore to work in inter-disciplinary teams in an environment that encourages innovative thinking and supports research excellence. Research at ARI is structured into seven cross-disciplinary research clusters, each led by a senior scholar: Asian Migration, Asian Urbanisms, Changing Family in Asia, Identities, Inter-Asia Engagements, Religion and Globalisation, and Science, Technology and Society. These clusters hold regular seminars, workshops, reading groups and conferences, providing the settings for critical exchanges between scholars with allied intellectual interests but different disciplinary ways of seeing and methodological inclinations.

Our cluster leaders have joint appointments with one of the university’s disciplinary departments. But the majority of our academic staff are early career postdoctoral fellows and mid-career research fellows. They are attached to one – sometimes two – of our research clusters. ARI’s scholarly dynamism is also sustained by short-term visiting fellows from across the globe. The mixture of permanent NUS staff, dedicated postdoctoral researchers, more established fellows, Singapore-based research associates, and researchers linked to projects, as well as short-term visitors, makes ARI a stimulating milieu for the advancement of scholarship on Asia – historical, contemporary and future-facing.

While ARI is a research institute, not a think tank or a policy centre, our work engages important challenges facing the region and wider worlds. These range from migration and child health, to ageing and care ethics, to the governance of transboundary haze. Such research initiatives are supported and extended with grants from both national and international funding bodies. Already plugged into a rich network of international associations and collaborations, ARI continues to evolve as a centre from where Asia-focused research engages practical as well as scholarly questions that are planetary in scope.
