Working Papers in Contemporary Asian Studies (2004 - 2017)

In 2004 the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies started publishing a publication series titled Working Papers in Contemporary Asian Studies.

The aim of the series was to provide a forum for new, interdisciplinary research on contemporary Asia. The series included contributions, each between 25 to 50 pages in length, written by researchers active at the Centre, visiting scholars who have presented papers at seminars or other activities organised by the Centre, as well as a selected student theses.

Between 2004 and 2017 the volumes 1 - 58 were printed and sent to a number of academic institutions throughout the world.  Each volume consisted of one working paper only, and carries a unique ISBN. The series as a whole has its own ISSN. In addition to the printed series, the working papers are also available in pdf-format (see link below). The volumes in the series are free of charge. The working papers can also be borrowed at the Asia Library.
