After taking the opportunity of organizing several sessions of the “China-ASEAN Education Cooperation Week”, Guizhou University established the ASEAN Research Center by integrating related disciplines and research forces in the university in 2009. In 2012, the center was formally approved by the Ministry of Education as a base for International and Regional Studies, making it the first research unit under the Ministry of Education for humanities and social sciences research in Guizhou Province. In August 2013, the Institute of ASEAN Research was founded based on the ASEAN Research Center and is responsible for the work of “Cultivating Base for International and Regional Studies”.
The Institute is guided by the principle of “giving priority to Guizhou, facing Southeast Asia, and serving the country’s diplomatic strategy” and actively undertakes major tasks such as scientific research, talent cultivation, and social services. It focuses on the research of education, culture, and agricultural economy in ASEAN countries, as well as international politics.
After years of development, the Institute has a high-level interdisciplinary research team with an appropriate average age, academic structure, and professional title structure. Currently, there are nearly 20 professional and part-time researchers in the Institute, with an average age of 37.2. Fifteen are associate professors holding doctoral degrees and all are excellent in academic studies in different disciplines of Guizhou University.

It is also responsible for drafting important documents like 'The Medium and Long-term Development Plan for the China-ASEAN Education Exchange Week”.
The Institute focuses on scientific research, program design, and serving 'China-ASEAN Education Cooperation Week'. By giving priority to cross-national study and regional cooperation study, the Institute will further expand its research horizon and carry out academic exchanges and cooperation at home and abroad so as to create its distinctive features. Moreover, the Institute is committed to building itself into a research think-tank with influence in Southeast Asia and a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary innovation research platform emphasizing scientific research and talent cultivation, as well as combining comprehensive research and specific research.
