Transcending boundaries of geography and knowledge to solve issues critical to the future of Asia
As Asia continues to rise in importance in the global arena, there exists a need to identify and address the region's greatest challenges at a deeper level.
The NUS Global Asia Institute aims to take the lead in research and scholarship directed at topics pivotal to Asia's future. Driven by the mission to provide in-depth insights to shape the nature of 21st Century Asia, the NUS Global Asia Institute will take a holistic approach to the fundamental issues confronting Asia and the world. By focusing on integrative studies, the work of the Institute will go beyond public policies and also deal with matters of technological importance. The Institute will complement existing NUS programmes that already have a significant Asian component.
The NUS Global Asia Institute, an initiative of NUS President Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, will bring together existing expertise from NUS and other universities, particularly those with expertise in India and China, in its quest for solutions that will solve the critical issues within Asia.
Advancing NUS to become a pre-eminent centre for thought-leadership, research and education on critical issues for Asia.
