Welcome to Project Southeast Asia

Recognising the importance of Southeast Asia, Project Southeast Asia aims to establish an interdisciplinary and transnational Centre for Southeast Asian Studies – a home for Southeast Asia in the heart of one of the world’s premier universities.

The Project will act as a focal point for academic and research activity, bringing together many of the most distinguished scholars in the field of Southeast Asian studies, together with the best and brightest new academic talent, for the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge about countries in the Southeast Asian region.

While emphasising core disciplines of history, politics/international relations, anthropology, human sciences, medicine, and development studies, it will also address and offer inputs into important contemporary issues facing Southeast Asia, such as regional security, infectious diseases, environmental change, ageing and sustainable development.

The Project will support research, student degree programmes, library and archival resources, institutional exchanges and academic events. It will ensure that the most talented students, regardless of need, will be able to study Southeast Asia at Oxford.
