France aims to improve research base in south-east Asia

Several French institutions have initiated a joint project to establish a humanities research culture in Cambodia and Laos.

The Manusastra project is aimed at providing the countries with scientific and educational publications in the social sciences and humanities, and supporting the long-term design of a masters degree, a graduate school and a regional research centre.

A project agreement was signed on 4 November between the CNRS, France’s largest public research funder, the IRD institute for development research, the Inalco institute of oriental languages and civilisations, and five higher education institutions: the Royal University of Fine Arts in Cambodia, the National University of Laos, the École Française d’Extrême-Orient, the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie and the Centre Asie du Sud-Est.
