InterAsia Academy

Co-sponsored by Social Science Research Council (SSRC), Transregional Institute (TRI) and the National University of Singapore

The InterAsia Academy, led by members of a hub network, affiliated scholars, and current and former fellows, was a two-week school comprising an intensive series of lectures geared towards a diverse mix of junior and senior scholars.  The program aimed to supplement the insular foci of nationally focused and area studies scholarship by enabling and supporting innovative cross regional collaborative research on themes of relevance to the countries and regions of Asia, broadly conceived to encompass and span East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and West Asia. In addition, the program created networks of scholarly exchange among Asian researchers at different stages of their career, thus fostering South South dialogue, and encouraging capacity building through “peer training” processes.
