Institute of Asian Studies
For research projects, a common investigative theme is set by multiple researchers (faculty members). For the purposes of conducting research, study groups are held and field studies are also conducted in neighboring Asian countries.
Investigative studies have been conducted by our team of researchers in the following countries: India, China, Mongolia, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Malaysia.
The team then presents their findings after the completion of the research period.
Periodicals and Published Research Findings
The institute also publishes books, namely the Bibliography of Tibetan Research and Tibet: A Political History.
Open Courses and Seminars
Open courses are held every spring. Lecturers from different fields give lectures one after another, based on a common theme. Furthermore, lectures on relevant topics are presented at the Asia Watcher seminars, which have been hugely popular, and fulfill the university’s role as an open facility for residents of the local community. Students can audit the seminars for free.
