The work of the Research Grants Committee includes the Research Grants Program, Academic Research Training for Grant recipients and Academic Research Training for non-grantees.
One of the main objectives of the program is to increase the number of people able to research, and the number of research products, on peace and human rights from SEA universities by 2018. A total of 40 Research Grants have been granted so far. Research Grants for 2018 are under consideration by the Selection Committee
The final papers will be edited and published on the SHAPE-SEA website, and may be published in one of SHAPE-SEA’s publications, a stand-alone publication, or a third party publication as long as this meets the requirements for publication set by the research program.
