Building Asian Drivers Networks in Africa and Southeast Asia

The goal of the project was to promote the development of research networks in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia working on the Asian Drivers theme: the impact of China and India on other parts of the developing world.

IDS worked closely with the African Economics Research Consortium, and a number of research meetings were organised. A small network was developed in Southeast Asia, centred on the Social Research Institute at Chiang Mai University in Thailand.
