Based on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary fundamental research, “Area Observation” focuses on the hot issues of developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Authored by young researchers, postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students at IIAS and derived from dynamic information and first-hand data, it strives to vividly present the latest and in-depth analysis from the perspective of developing countries. The column articles can be used by government authorities, enterprises, institutions, higher education institutions and professional think tanks to understand area research trends. It can also serve as an important channel for general readers to explore developing countries. After the first issue was published in June 2020, the journal will be updated quarterly.
