South Asia across the Nordic Region (SANR)

The South across the Nordic Region (SANR) was established in Copenhagen in June 2017. The inaugural meeting brought together scholars and policy practitioners from the Nordic region and South Asia together where future pathways for scholarly and policy collaborations were discussed.

The prime aim of SANR is to facilitate presentation of cutting edge research undertaken by Nordic scholars, and to generate greater collaboration between scholars and practitioners across Nordic universities and research policy institutions. The forum is particularly geared to support young scholars in need of mentorship in the early career stage. The scholarly meetings are an important step towards building up future frameworks of cooperation on South Asian research, policy and teaching.
