Structure and purposeEdit
This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (February 2017)
On 1 January 2005, NIAS was incorporated as an independent academic institute under Danish University Law, and is now a centre at the Department of Political Science of the University of Copenhagen. The Department of Political Science has administrative and legal responsibility for NIAS, while the institute's independence is manifested through NIAS own strategy and research policy.
Nordic Institute of Asian Studies operate its own press, NIAS Press, focusing primarily on social sciences and history relating to contemporary Southeast Asia and East Asia, but not exclusively. NIAS Press presents authors from all over the world and publishes exclusively in English.
"Asia in Focus" is a peer-reviewed academic journal published twice a year on-line by NIAS.
