Central European Institute of Asian Studies (CEIAS) is a transnational think tank headquartered in Bratislava, Slovakia, and with a regional presence in Czechia, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Canada, and beyond.
The main purpose of CEIAS is to spread knowledge about Asia among scholars, experts, and professionals in Central Europe and beyond, while at the same time informing the wider world about Central European engagements with Asia.
To meet our aims, we conduct and publish our own research, organize public seminars and conferences, support education about relevant Asian topics, and communicate with the media. Our activities focus mainly on international relations and security studies in the geographical regions of East, Southeast, South, and Central Asia. The CEIAS cooperates with similar organizations and like-minded individuals in the region and beyond to help achieve our goals.
