The South Asia Centre aims to encourage engagement with each and every country in the region, facilitating and organising events, research, inter-disciplinary collaboration and policy recommendations to promote wider interest in the region within the LSE and the UK.
The countries in South Asia are represented by one of their national symbols. As we develop our work across the region, additional pages will be added to reflect our engagement with these countries.
