Dr Ming-chin Monique Chu is Lecturer in Chinese Politics, Employability Officer within Social Sciences: Politics & International Relations at the University of Southampton.

Dr Ming-chin Monique Chu joined the University of Southampton in September 2014 as a lecturer in Chinese Politics at the Department of Politics and International Relations. She gained MPhil and PhD degrees in international relations from the University of Cambridge. Her research sits within the areas of political economy and security of international relations. Her specific research interests include the impact of globalization on security, the concepts of sovereignty and contested states, media and international relations, Chinese foreign policy, and China-Taiwan relations.

Monique’s doctoral research focused on the production globalization of the semiconductor industry and its security repercussions. It examines in particular the migration of the Taiwanese chip industry to China and its economic, technological and defence security challenges for the United States, China and Taiwan. Her first research monograph, The East Asian Computer Chip War, builds further on her doctoral work and was published by Routledge in November 2013.

Before coming to Southampton, Monique taught at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) as well as the University of Oxford. In 2012, she was one of the joint runners-up for the prestigious SOAS Director’s Teaching Prize. In June 2014, she won a research grant of €19, 315 for a research project entitled China’s Sovereignty Challenges, from the Chiang Ching-Kuo Foundation for International Scholarly Exchange. In December 2014, she won the University of Southampton Annual Adventures in Research Award 2015 of GBP 9,980 to support her ongoing field trips for the research undertaking.

Monique’s academic work builds on wider work experience as an award-winning political journalist in Asia. This experience has given her insight into the way governments work in Asia, and a substantial network of contacts in the Asia-Pacific region. Monique has been interviewed by BBC World News, BBC World Service, Fuji Television Network, Radio France International, and Deutsche Welle on issues pertaining to Chinese politics and China’s external relations.
