KUIK Cheng-Chwee is an associate professor at the Strategic Studies and International
Relations Program at the National University of Malaysia (UKM), and concurrently
an associate fellow at the Institute of China Studies at the University of Malaya (UM).
Previously he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Princeton-Harvard “China and
the World” Program at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
Cheng-Chwee’s research concentrates on three clusters of thematic issues: weaker states’
alignment positions and great power politics (with a focus on Asian states’ hedging behavior),
domestic legitimation and foreign policy choices (with particular reference to China’s and
Southeast Asian states’ external policies), as well as the politics of multilateralism and its
impact on the evolving Asian architecture. He can be contacted at cckuik@gmail.com
