Research

Apart from individual cooperation projects, the regular research workshops have led to a number of joint publications (see below).

EastAsiaNet has also taken up the challenge of defining good practice in terms of doctoral-level education in the field of area studies:
The EastAsiaNet International Benchmark for Doctorates (PhDs) in East Asian Studies, passed in December 2009

A list of completed doctoral projects of EastAsiaNet member institutions can be found here:
