Thematic Research Groups
Thematic research activities in the Centre
The CCG comprises experts from diverse and complementary disciplines including sociology, history, political science, public health, political philosophy, international relations, political economy, and anthropology. They draw on both qualitative and quantitative methods to enhance their research and
to produce innovative and accessible studies. CCG researchers also specialise in a number of regions including Australia, China, Korea, India, Indonesia, Japan, North Africa, the Middle East and the United States.
The CCG's research activities coalesce around a set of common themes, which encourage and enable cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration among leading and emerging CCG, Deakin and international scholars.
