Institute for East Asian Studies

In the coming years, the institute aims to consolidate its status as one of the leading centres for contemporary East Asian studies in Europe. IN-EAST has already acquired an international reputation for its research in the fields of economics and social sciences. At the same time, its commitment to educating the next generation of East Asian scholars will make its academic profile even more clear-cut. Another stated goal of IN-EAST is to conduct more comparative research between East Asia and other countries and regions. The close collaboration between the leading institutes of East Asian research in Europe and Asia will advance the globalisation of research and teaching in East Asian studies.
