About Sydasien

Sydasien (Southasia) is a non-profit, independent media organisation, registered in Sweden as an online journal and a quarterly journal. It was founded in 1977 as a quarterly magazine by journalists and academic scholars in Stockholm, Lund and Gothenburg.

Today, our editorial office is located near Gothenburg, but we never loose sight of South Asia. We have a constant focus on Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

We cover society, culture and politics in South Asia, with a special focus on human rights. Still today, in the 2020’s, we have a vital relationship between journalists and researchers.

We report in Swedish language, mainly to a readership in Sweden, but we have readers and subscribers in the neighbouring Nordic countries as well. We run the website/online journal Sydasien.se, where we publish at least two new articles every week. In 2021 we are re-emerging as a quarterly journal.

Sydasien published an annual book (#1 2021) early February and in mid-September, our magazine (#3 2021) will reach our subscribers. In between the yearbook and the magazine, we publish two smaller issues.

Currently we have subscribers in a handful of countries of our printed journal. If you want to subscribe, please send us an email at info@sydasien.se, and we will respond promptly.
