The Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia is a world-class hub for area-based research on the past, present and future of Japan, Asia and the world, in a range of fields including politics, economics, history, literature, art and religion. The diversity of our research is enhanced through an ethos of inclusive collaboration and staff exchange with other world-class institutions, and by hosting researchers from overseas to undertake independent research. Visiting scholars benefit from research space, access to an extensive specialist library with collections in a range of Asian languages, and opportunities to interact with the distinguished scholars who are permanently or temporarily affiliated with the Institute.
