It aims to promote research and teaching around the different social, cultural, economic and political facets that characterize the countries of East Asia, with special reference to China and Japan. Until its creation, the academic activities related to China and Japan, which since were carried out at the Autonomous University of Madrid, were held in different areas of knowledge within the social sciences and the humanities. The Center for the Study of Eastern Asia has created a pioneering institution capable of sponsoring and coordinating these efforts, serving as a reference both to the Spanish university community and to all the public and private entities in the country.
The Asian Studies Center is a global resource for research and education about Asia, as well as a regional center for building Asian connections. In partnership with over affiliated faculty from across the university, we develop innovative research, foster community engagement, and create rigorous academic programming.

Ruins are everywhere. In Asia, aspirations for socio-economic development have led to the rapid transformation of the environmental, social and economic landscape. Led by a diverse range of local, national and international actors these transformations have informed the creation of new forms of ruins and ruinations, the disintegration of recognizable forms whether they be material, ideational or institutional.
The purpose of the Forum for Asian Studies is to strengthen and support research and education on Asia, and to encourage exchange of researchers and students with universities in Central, Eastern, South-Eastern and Southern Asia, and with other research institutions with a focus on Asian studies. The Forum is multidisciplinary with affiliated researchers from across the Faculty of Social Sciences, Stockholm University. The core activities are a monthly seminar and regular conferences and workshops.
