The Center for South Asian Studies (CSAS) was established to pursue multidimensional cooperative projects with the eight countries in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and to study their history, economy, politics, languages and cultures with the aim of systematically building related capacities. After establishing diplomatic relations with South Asian countries in the 1970s, Korea has recently reinforced cooperation in the context of New Southern Policy. With this trend, CSAS has the task of accumulating reliable high-quality information on the South Asian region to secure as its assets and fostering regional experts. CSAS seeks to perform the role of an academic link that connects diverse agents who contribute to the creation and accumulation of information related to South Asia.
