About us

Orient Institute

The Orient Institute (IO) was founded in 1989. It is a research unit belonging to Instituto Superior de Ciências Sociais e Políticas (ISCSP - School of Social and Political Sciences) at Universidade de Lisboa.

 

Areas of intervention

Asian Studies are the focus of research at the IO. They take a multidisciplinary approach, thanks to the diverse academic backgrounds of its researchers with international experience ranging from Anthropology to International Relations. The specific realities of each country and sub-region and relations between Portugal and Asia are particularly important.

 

Activities are carried out under three research groups:

- Middle East and Central Asia;

Southeast Asia and South Asia;

- East Asia.

 

 

Activities

The IO researchers work in research projects, organisation of conferences, publication of articles, working papers, dissertations and books and post-graduate, training and consultancy programmes.
