South and South East Asia, the region marked by historical, civilisational and cultural similarities and continuities are also distinguished by stark differences and discontinuities. All three dominant religions- Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism accompanied by respective cultural traditions have travelled throughout the region.
The Centre for South East Asian Studies (CSEAS) was established primarily to connect with the civil society and educational institutions of the neighbouring countries. Apart from academic research main purpose of the centre is to establish a people to people connection with the neighbouring region.
