Tsinghua Area Studies Forum Proceedings
Area Studies: New Realities, New Conceptions is the first in a series planned to be published by the Institute for International and Area Studies (IIAS) of Tsinghua University. The IIAS held its first Area Studies Forum in July 2019, with the theme of “Innovating New Approaches to Common Challenges in Asia, Africa and Latin America”. The chapters of this book have been developed from 9 papers which were presented at the Forum, to represent a range of area studies approaches and regions. The book seeks to create a link between IIAS researchers and those from elsewhere working on the Global South, and in the process to expand the boundaries of comparative area studies.
The IIAS strives to become a comprehensive area studies research institution, linked to China’s national aspirations while embracing a global perspective. It covers multiple disciplines and promotes a comparative area studies approach. It seeks to build area studies expertise based on sound academic research.
