About the Journal
Aim & Scope
Journal “Asian Issues“ is the product of common aspiration and eagerness of researchers gathered in the Institute, whose aim is to get Asia – that is more and more important and strong globally – closer to our academic and general public.
Editorial board’s program orientation is based on studying of Asia that could lead to better understanding of the plenty of its models of political and economic organization, different cultures, ethnic, religious and other identities of its peoples, as well of numerous mechanisms that connect Asian states and societies through different frameworks of cooperation – in trade, environmental protection, culture, political and others, including security.
Economic rise of some of the biggest Asian states, their ever more intense mutual cooperation by strength of their separate and combined size, but also by their cultural and political influence - change regional, and global institutions, processes, relations and manners, and by doing that they influence our lives.
Our view on Asia is view “within” as we try to study, understand, accept and present Asia to the interested parties by measuring its achievements, reality and potentials by Asian merits, with having starting point in Asian culture, tradition, interests and need of the region’s communities, as we believe that is the proper way to understand this, by many parameters, the most dynamic world region.
