Dr Pacheco Pardo is currently working on three research projects. The first project focuses on East Asia’s financial regionalism post-Global Financial Crisis. The project examines the evolving role of the CMIM and AMRO in the development of a regional financial safety net among ASEAN+3 countries, as well as the relationship between this regional mechanism and global institutions. 

The second research project Dr Pacheco Pardo is currently working centres on financial liberalisation. Using quantitative methodology, the project examines the reasons why countries take the decision to open their capital accounts and whether financial crises are the result of particular reasons for opening up. 

The final research project Dr Pacheco Pardo is working on examines contemporary European views of China. Funded by a grant from Tsinghua University Scientific Research Development, this collaborative project examines how European elites and media perceive China as an international actor.
