Local knowledge, transnational conversations

The Asian Institute is composed of several focused yet interconnected centres, initiatives and seminar series, which host over one hundred academic events each year. These centres support the deep, specialized knowledge about particular regions that is necessary to understand the complexities of local issues, while working together to foster transnational and interdisciplinary conversations that transcend and contextualize local viewpoints.
