About the Organization

The National University of Singapore aspires to be a vital community of academics, researchers, staff, students and alumni working together in a spirit of innovation and enterprise for a better world.

Our singular focus on talent will be the cornerstone of a truly great university that is dedicated to quality education, influential research and visionary enterprise, in service of country and society.

The Asia Research Institute (ARI) was established in 2001 to provide a focal point and resource for world-class research on the Asian region at the National University of Singapore. ARI engages the humanities and social sciences broadly defined and especially interdisciplinary frontiers between and beyond disciplines. As a university-level institute, ARI brings together scholars from different departments, schools and faculties across campus for seminars, conferences and collaborative research projects. Located at one of Asia’s communication hubs, the Institute is also an important place for scholarly encounters between Singapore, the region and wider worlds.

Home to a strong team of full-time researchers, and central to networks of associates in Singapore and overseas, ARI sustains thematic research clusters and programmes as well as areally-defined study groups. We welcome visitors who wish to conduct their Asia-focused research from Singapore. Above all, we encourage collaboration with scholars and institutions who share our mission to carry out impactful scholarship on Asia as a highly diverse and globally-connected region.
