The Centre for Asian Studies (CAS) is dedicated to the study of contemporary Asia in a time of globalisation. Its activities are organised around a general theme: “Global Re-ORIENT-ation: the Renewing of Asia and the Reorganisation of the World”. Drawing from a multidisciplinary approach in social sciences and humanities, its academic approach aims toward better understanding of the economic, social and political development of all Asian countries, as well as their increasing role in international relations, with a focus on the four largest: China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. The core mission of CAS is to foster interdisciplinary research on various topics of interest pertaining to its general theme. Besides, CAS organises executive education and further training courses, conferences, seminars as well as workshops and has an online publication program. It also coordinates the contribution of the Graduate Institute in the Master of Asian Studies (MASPEA) organised together with the University of Geneva.
Link Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Lund University, Sweden
The Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies was created in 1997 as the result of a special government initiative. The Centre's task is the encouragement and furtherance of research in Sweden concerning modern East and South-East Asia, including the rapidly changing societies, developing economies and political institutions in the region. Building upon existing strengths at Lund University in these fields, the Centre is actively engaged in developing new contacts with institutions and individuals in Asia and elsewhere. The Centre is involved in a wide range of activities. These include hosting guest lectures and seminars, and organising and providing financial support to conferences and specialised courses. The Centre maintains what is generally acclaimed to be the best-stocked library in Scandinavia of contemporary books and journals concerning East and South-East Asia. The Centre is governed by a board of directors who meet regularly to decide on important issues regarding the Centre.

Link Leiden Institute for Area Studies
LIAS has as its aim the advancement of Area Studies at Leiden University and in the wider academic community, with emphatic attention to the relevance of education and research for society at large. Area Studies emerges at the intersection of multiple disciplines and regional foci, employing deep linguistic and cultural knowledge in partnership with disciplinary theory and method in the humanities and social sciences. It relies on sensitivity to and critical reflection on the situatedness of scholarship. It foregrounds the regions studied as not just sources of data, but also sources of theory and method that challenge disciplinary claims to universality. Testing the boundaries of the disciplines and giving pride of place to a wide range of regions and historical periods, Area Studies should be, by definition, an interdisciplinary enterprise. LIAS is comprised of the Schools of Asian Studies (SAS) and Middle Eastern Studies (SMES). LIAS staff have expertise in anthropology, art & material culture studies, development studies, economics, film studies, history (cultural, intellectual, military, political, social), language pedagogy, law, linguistics, literary studies, media studies, philology, philosophy, political science, religious studies, and sociology. They contribute to BA, MA, and PhD programs including Chinese Studies, Japanese Studies, Korean Studies, South- & Southeast Asian Studies (Indonesia, India & Tibet), Ancient Cultures of the Mediterranean (Assyriology, Egyptology, Papyrology), Hebrew & Judaism, Middle-Eastern Studies (Arabic, New-Persian, Turkish), and Classics and Ancient Civilizations.
Link "Research Focus Asia" at the Department of Geography and Regional Research, University of Vienna
No other continent or world region has witnessed more dynamic economic, demographic, and social transformations than parts of Asia during the last decades. Especially India and several countries of East and Southeast Asia have already become imortant global players, while only a few decades ago, most of them were considered to be backward and dominated by agriculture. Increasingly complex economic interrelationships between the more developed countries and the so-called Asian NIC´s as well as the soaring attractiveness of several parts of Asia as booming destinations of mass tourism, have led to a growing demand for regional experts, for example as consultants in economic matters, politics or mass media. Other countries in the region, however, still belong to the poorest nations on Earth and are thus target areas of international development cooperation. Again this field, where a broad multi-paradigmatic approach seems appropriate, offers various job opportunities for geographers, e. g. in project development, consulting and evaluation. For these reasons we offer at our department the possibility to specialize within the curriculum "Geography Diploma" in "development studies / development cooperation" with a regional focus on Asia (especially Southeast and South Asia).
