a. Project Overview:
Instituto do Oriente (IO) is the only Research Unit in Portugal exclusively dedicated to the study of the main Asian countries in their contemporaneous reality – a merely geographic concept that expands from Central Asia (former Soviet Republics) to Japan. IO has as its primordial goal to become an Institute of excellence in Portugal for Asian studies and, thus, inform regularly and alert the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Academia and the Portuguese society in general to the importance of this region characterized, today, by an unequivocal centrality in the international stage.
The constituted research groups in IO are divided according to the great Asian sub-regions – Oriental Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia. There was also recognition of key-countries – now called emerging powers (China and India); the countries that due to their fast economic growth (Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea) are also becoming medium powers; and the large economic development countries (Japan). IO’s research guidelines attend also to new classifications which are beginning in European literature, mainly French, which is South-South, Afro-Asian and Euro-Asian thematics, and, sporadically, they can even include the identification and monitoring of the new coordination forms among these countries/regions.
Also, IO, as natural successor of the old Colonial Higher Studies Institute, founded in 1906, continues to give much attention to the new realities of study in the Portuguese colonial territories, Goa (India), Macao (China) and East-Timor (Indonesia).
