Jamia to Offer Two New Programmes on China and Afghanistan

New Delhi: Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University will soon offer two new programmes on China and Afghanistan. The University will set up a China Studies Centre and an Afghanistan Studies Centre for the same purpose. Besides, these centres have been sanctioned by the UGC under the scheme of Area Study Centres.
 
As per a press release issued by the University, both China and Afghanistan are two important neighbouring countries of India. The main purpose of the study centers is to encourage Indian understanding of China and Afghanistan in a historical framework as well as from a contemporary outlook.
 
The upcoming centres will encourage interdisciplinary research focussing on the history, sociology, politics, economics, and languages of these two countries. In addition, the centres propose to develop a pool of scholars and expertise on China and Afghanistan, besides networking with similar institutions engaged in the study of these two countries.
 
The activities of the centres would be designed to stimulate debate in public spheres for public policy making. In addition, the setting up of these new centres will strengthen the existing study programmes Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) University, at present, runs programs on Africa, West Asia, Central Asia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. They will work as complementary programmes to promote international studies.
