Asia Institute Tasmania

The Asia Institute Tasmania is an organisation that will foster engagement with the Asian region by the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian community. It will build professional and institutional relationships with Asia, develop expertise and understanding of Asia, and promote new research activities.

Established in a partnership with the State Government of Tasmania, the Asia Institute Tasmania traverses not just academic boundaries within the university, but engages with the whole Tasmanian community.
