Anne-Marie Brady is a fluent Chinese language speaker who specializes in researching Chinese politics and polar politics.
Her research interests fall within the fields of China’s international relations and domestic politics, governance, communist/post-communist studies, nationalism, New Zealand’s past and present relations with China; and the politics of Antarctica and the Arctic.
In 2005 Dr Brady was awarded a 3-year (later extended to 4-years) NZ$634,000 research grant by the Marsden Fund of the Royal Society of New Zealand to set up a research team on the topic of China’s propaganda system. Two books and several papers were published from this project see:

and Littlefield, 2008
Dr Brady's radio documentary the “Message from China,” was broadcast on BBC World Service on April 9, 2008. This 22-minute feature programme, produced by BBC veteran Kathy Flower was based on Dr Brady's research into China’s modernised propaganda system. Dr Brady researched, wrote and presented the programme. Download the programme here:
