A Special Issue of Asian Security now published
The TTÜ’s Department of Law is announcing a major publication in the field of social sciences.
A transnational multi-year academic project, ‘NATO Global Perceptions – Views from [the] Asia-Pacific Region’, which was operationally managed by the Centre for Asia-Pacific Studies (Department of Law, School of Business and Governance, TTÜ), has been finalised with a sizable manuscript published as a Special Issue of Asian Security, a reputable A-rated academic journal.
Having commenced in October 2014, the study was funded by NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme, TTÜ and the NATO Public Diplomacy Division. During the Project’s Final Conference at NATO HQ (February 2017), the research work was acknowledged as the most international academic study in social sciences ever conducted in the framework of NATO SPS Programme. Almost three years of work, two international conferences, 5 workshops and round tables on three continents, 19 researchers and administrators from 8 different countries involved – the Project’s exposure to the stakeholders confirmed the novelty and relevance of the research to the Alliance and its global partnerships.
Apart from a groundbreaking academic impact, the results discussed with practitioners and stakeholders were found relevant for NATO’s public diplomacy-related and strategic communication initiatives in the Asia-Pacific, as well as for the Alliance’s Building Integrity Programme and the organisation’s Operations Division.
