The principal mission of the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs is to provide the intellectual core for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and teaching on Asia. It is home to over one hundred affiliated scholars researching and teaching on Asia. This community of scholars spans a broad range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, and their regional breadth covers the entire Asian continent. Though organized along sub-regional lines – with centres for South Asian Studies, Korean Studies, and related groups focusing on Southeast Asia and Central and Inner Asia – the Asian Institute encourages intra-regional dialogue and interdisciplinary collaboration.
