Global Malaysian studies network: A proposal to Australian National University

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Problem statement: Global Malaysian Studies Network (GMSN) is an idea proposed to Australian National University (ANU) in setting up its Malaysian Studies. Currently, there are a number of academic institutions which have established its Malaysian Studies. However, there have been problems and restraints where some research institutes have failed to effectively deliver such studies and in turn drives institute to shift to the other studies which promise good students and research funds. With the aim to assist ANU, this study has explored the potential on the development aspect of ANU to look into it particularly. Approach: Through the development of other institutions where information is available on the internet, this study inspects all documents to investigate the problems of other research institutes with regard to their offerings in Malaysian studies to propose a more structured planned strategy for ANU to set up GMSN. Results: There are three elements which appear as the fundamental areas for ANU to establish GMSN; academic, governance and networking. These three elements are crucial in order to develop the GMSN at its initial stage. Conclusion: A combination and integration of academic, governance and networking will position GMSN at ANU as a world class research institute in Malaysian Studies.
