The Centre

Welcome to the Centre for India and South Asia Research


The Centre for India and South Asia Research (CISAR) promotes interdisciplinary research related to South Asia, disseminating knowledge through seminars, lectures, and conferences. The Centre brings together faculty, research associates, graduate and undergraduate students, and the public with an interest in South Asia. It also seeks to create and promote institutional and scholar-to-scholar linkages between UBC and institutions in South Asia and beyond, and between UBC and South Asian communities in British Columbia. CISAR is part of the Institute of Asian Research within UBC’s School of Public Policy of Global Affairs.
