Global Asia Initiative

The NYUAD “Global Asia Initiative” (GAI) is an interdisciplinary network of faculty working on Asia in the broadest sense. It works as a platform for scholars to come together to discuss each other’s work, host talks by external speakers, or collaborate on curricular development. GAI collaborates with the newly founded NYU Shanghai’s Center for Global Asia and similar emerging initiatives at New York University in New York.
