Dear Reader,

(including all its subsidiary (and/or sister) pages on "coombs.anu.edu.au" server) has permanently ceased its publishing operations on Friday 21st January 2011.

All of the online resources reported here have been thoroughly checked at the time of their listing. However, it is possible that, with the with the passage of time, many of the originally reported materials might have been removed from the Internet, or changed their online address, or varied the scope and quality of their contents.

Fortunately, in several cases it is possible to access many of the older versions of the resources listed in the MONITOR. This can be easily done via the free services of the "The Internet Archive" http://web.archive.org/, a remarkable brainchild of Brewster Kahle, San Francisco, CA.

- with warm regards -

Asia Research Institute (ARI)


18 Feb 2009

National University of Singapore, Singapore.

"Established as a university-level institute in July 2001, the Asia Research Institute (ARI) is one of the strategic initiatives of the National University of Singapore, as it focuses its sights on being a world-leading hub for research and education on Asia. ARI engages the social sciences broadly defined, and especially interdisciplinary frontiers between and beyond disciplines. It seeks to be a space of encounters for scholars around the world working on Asia. Within NUS, it works particularly with the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Business, Law, Design and Environment, and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, as well as the other Asia institutes to support research, conferences, lectures and graduate study at the highest level.
Its research clusters are organised around the following themes: # The Changing Family in Asia, # Asian Migration, # Cultural Studies in Asia, # Religion and Globalisation in Asian Contexts, # Southeast Asia-China Interactions, including a Project on Southeast Asian Archaeology, # Sustainable Cities, # Open Cluster."
