Over the years, the UP Asian Center has conducted institutional research, the more recent of which include studies on Asian migrant communities in the Philippines and on development in the Asian Century.
The Bugkos Research Program of the Asian Center undertakes comparative and regional studies under the theme, “Putting Equitable Development at the Center of the Asian Century.” The two-year research program, which began in December 2015 and is funded by the Emerging Interdisciplinary Research Program (EIDR) under the UP Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
