The catalogue contains information about on-going or recently completed academic research projects on Asia being conducted at Finnish universities and research institutes. The data was collected through an e-mail form that circulated among Asia researchers in Finland during the summer of 2019. Forthcoming academic publications as well as publications between 2016 and 2019 are also included, while Master’s theses are omitted.

The catalogue is updated on demand throughout the year. Please contact Outi Luova ( if you want to be included in the catalogue.
