The Research Group carrying its research on Southeast Asia and South Asia has developed its work mainly focusing on the following subjects: State-Building (and associated phenomena like State fragility or collapse), from a perspective of cross-linking International Relations, Political Science and Anthropology; in this same interdisciplinary view, this group has studied expressions and evolution of the nationalist phenomenon, and safety, in a multidimensional perspective, taking into account its most recent interpretations (e.g. human safety or energetic safety). This Research Group has also investigated the regional integration process in Southeast Asia, by studying ASEAN specificities and evolution, in a political, economic and safety point of view. State-Building Monitor stands out among its regular activities. Some topics have deserved a special attention, like India’s geopolitics in the South Asia context, State-Building in East Timor, energetic safety in Southeast Asia (in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia), nationalism (and irredentism) in the Indian Union, Myanmar, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia, and ASEAN’s institutional development, among others.
