Resources for Researchers

The Forum for South Asia Research aims to support and facilitate research on South Asia within the Humanities and Social Sciences at Uppsala University. To that end the Forum actively supports researchers at all levels to facilitate and advance their research through providing different resources. Consult our support strategy for further information.

Resources for Students

The involvement and participation of students is encouraged in all FSAS activities. Further Uppsala University has several other possibilities to support students that are interested in the region. Consult the International Office at Uppsala University for more information. 

Other resources

Beside multiple resources provided by the Forum, Uppsala University offers a wide range of tools for researchers and students for example through the University Library (photo). Additionally, the Forum is cooperating with several partners in the Nordic countries which extend additional resources of knowledge and networking for scholars and students at Uppsala University. Among those are:

SASNET Swedish South Asian Studies Network

National Swedish network to promote South Asia related research and education at Swedish/Nordic universities, and increased collaboration between Swedish/Nordic researchers and counterparts in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, Bhutan and Maldives.

Nordic Centre in India

The Nordic Centre in India, NCI, is a consortium of leading universities and research institutions in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. It was established in 2001 with the objective to facilitate cooperation in research and higher education between the Nordic countries and India. Through academic exchange NCI seeks to strengthen Indo-Nordic ties and understanding. Uppsala University is a member of NCI.

Nordic Institute of Asia Studies

NIAS - the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies - is an academically independent Nordic research and resource center, focusing on modern Asia from a predominantly social sciences perspective. NIAS is an integrated part of the University of Copenhagen with the status of a centre under the Department of Political Science.
