The Australian National University

The CRLC was created as a virtual centre linking researchers and students from various Schools and Departments at the Australian National University as well as scholars from other Universities both within Australia and abroad. The web site helps keep members informed of upcoming seminars and events, research projects, the newsletter and contact information.

The Centre has University-wide participation by full members. It was formally established within the Division of Society and Environment in the Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies in August 2001.
