Cultivating the Humanities and Social Sciences & Supporting Under-Represented Scholars of Asia
SOUTHEAST ASIA & SOUTH ASIA
CHSS · Supporting Under-Represented Scholars of Asia
This four-year project (03/2022-02/2026) aims at reducing the vulnerabilities of Southeast and South Asian low-income countries through policy-pertinent research, especially in post-conflict and conflict areas to stimulate peace building, cooperation and development.
This collaborative project will pursue its objectives through cooperation, exchange, and the creation of a ‘network of networks’ centered on four main partners located in different parts of the region. These include two universities based in Southeast Asia (Thailand and Cambodia) and two in South Asia (India and Pakistan). In addition, the project will work with an East-Timorese institutional partner to continue fostering the field of Timor-Leste studies.

The “Multiple Marginalities” conference was the first event held under the “(CHSS) project, with the support of (SIDA).

CHSS Project Hubs and Focus Point in South and Southeast Asia
To lay a solid foundation of this project, we build on the selected institutions’ strategic geographical locations, teaching resources, and accounting and reporting capabilities. The ‘regional Hubs’ will help us identify and develop the capacity of underserved universities that are often located away from the largest cities and/ or in areas of conflict. The Timor-Leste Focus Point will develop the profile of Timor-Leste Studies.
