Top knowledge of Asia in the Nordic countries

20.02.2007
The Nordic countries are strong in Asia-related research. This is the result of a recent evaluation of the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, NIAS. "As Asia continues to develop, the Nordic countries need more people with knowledge about Asian nations, their cultures, economies, and political systems," says Jørgen Delman, NIAS‘ director.
In the evaluation NIAS is praised for the development of a Nordic Asia Portal. "The AsiaPortal is a window to Nordic research on Asia as we invite our partner universities to promote their activities and recourses on the Portal," says Anja Møller Rasmussen, Chief Librarian at NIAS.

"At NIAS we are extremely proud of the conclusions of the evaluation. It shows that we are not only moving in the right direction but that our work is also useful to our partners throughout the Nordic region," says Delman.

The NIAS partnership includes 26 Nordic universities and research institutes. Read more about NIAS.
