Institutes in charge of Asian and Oriental studies in Romania

There are different institutes in which Asian research is conducted in Romania where researchers, human and social sciences PhD teachers and Asian geo-cultural relations experts work on culture, history, social life, archaeology or linguistics.

Most institutions are attached either to the Romanian Academy or to a University where one can find research centres and Master studies of Asian languages, civilisations and cultures.

Religion, religious interaction between eastern and western Europe, modern history of Eastern Asia, political orientation, migration, literature are so many studied subjects.

Most of the teachers have passed their PhD, but some are still studying and often publish articles in French or English.

The studied countries are: the Russian federation, India, Japan, China, Turkey, Tibet, Iran, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Belorussia, Afghanistan and the Caucasian region.

Many scholarships were granted for Japanese studies due to the cultural and educational exchanges that exist between Romania and Japan.

In 2008 the first Master in Eastern Asia studies was created at the university of Bucharest, students can major in Chinese, Japanese or Korean language. That same year was created the Asian studies department at the Babes- Bolyai Cluj-Napoca University.
