Welcome to SARI

The ANU South Asia Research Institute fosters cutting-edge multidisciplinary research on South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka). Examining the region’s rich past, complex present, and global impact, we illuminate the importance of India and its neighbours to Asia, the Pacific, Australia and the world.

Our mission:

  • to set the agenda in national and international discourse about South Asia;
  • to nurture a world-class undergraduate and postgraduate program;
  • to serve as a partner and essential resource for those who focus on South Asia.
