As the broad region of Indo-Pacific is getting more and more attention from policy makers and scholars alike, there is a growing demand for better understanding of the region. Eurasian Insights: Strengthening Indo-Pacific Studies (EISIPS) in Europe is an international project funded by the Erasmus + Programme, that will answer that demand.
The aim of the project is to broaden the knowledge and insights into the region of Indo-Pacific. The concept of Indo-Pacific is derived from geography and spans Indian and Pacific Oceans from India and Pakistan through Southeast Asia to Japan, Australia and New Zealand. The aim of the project is to broaden the knowledge and insights into the region of Indo-Pacific, which has been identified as a multidisciplinary research area focusing on the political, social, economic and security developments.
The international consortium, with partners in Europe and in Asia, aims to produce a student friendly handbook, that will help promote knowledge of the region and spark interest among people interested in area studies and international relations. In addition to the handbook, the goals of the project include: an Indo-Pacific course outline and didactic guidelines, that will help lecturers teach Indo-Pacific studies and a series of podcasts, prepared and recorded by specialists in their fields, to further help understand different aspects of the region.
