Jamia Millia launches courses on China, Afghanistan

Thursday September 29, 2011 05:44:25 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Jamia Millia Islamia has launched two new programmes on China and Afghanistan to promote a better understanding of India's two important neighbours, a varsity statement said Thursday.

The varsity would be establishing centres for China and Afghanistan studies in its campus soon as both have been sanctioned by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

"China and Afghanistan are two important neighbouring countries of India. The centres would promote an Indian understanding of these two countries in a historical framework as well as from a contemporary perspective," said the statement.

"The centres will encourage interdisciplinary research focussing on the history, sociology, politics, economics and languages of these two countries," it added.

According to Jamia, the centres will develop a pool of scholars and experts on the two countries 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."

With the establishment of the new centres, Jamia is aiming to strengthen its existing area studies programmes on Africa, West Asia, Central Asia, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
