NIAS Press is a scholarly press specializing in publishing innovative research in all fields of Asian Studies but focusing mainly on the social sciences and history, particularly research dealing with contemporary East and Southeast Asia.
NIAS Press is the publishing arm of the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS), a research and service institute located at Copenhagen University. Funded in part by the university, in part by the governments of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden via the Nordic Council of Ministers and in part directly by the Nordic scholarly community, NIAS works to encourage and support Asian Studies in the Nordic countries as well as actively participating in the international scholarly community in its own right.
NIAS has published books since 1969, and in 2002 launched NIAS Press as an independent, not-for-profit publisher aiming at a premium reputation among authors and readers for relevant and focused, quality publishing in the field of Asian Studies. Today, the press is one of Europe’s leading publishers on Southeast Asian affairs.
