Nordic NIAS Council

Nordic Flags

Presently 23 Nordic universities and research institutions in all five Nordic countries make up the Nordic NIAS Council, a body that actively works to support and strengthen Asian studies in the Nordic region.

The aims of the NNC

The aims of the NNC are to further Nordic Asian studies by pooling resources and establishing mutual cooperation in developing research, as well as the organization of conferences, seminars and Asia-related educational programmes in the Nordic region. In particular, it works to promote synergy between the activities at the NNC member institutions and NIAS.

The NNC hosts an annual conference that rotates between the five Nordic countries, and holds an annual council meeting hosted by NIAS.
