Cooperation with Leiden University

Apr 19, 2012

The Cluster "Asia and Europe" cooperates with various institutions in the humanities and social sciences. One of its key partners is the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Science at the University of Leiden, Netherlands.

The Cluster's cooperation with Leiden University aims at the joint supervision of graduate students, research projects and applications, as well as joint degrees.

With roughly 4700 students and 430 faculty members, the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Science is the largest faculty at Leiden University. Its main objective is to engage in fundamental research. Therefore, its education programme is largely research based and the strong interaction between education and research offers its students an excellent empirical education.

Leiden University is the oldest university in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1575 and today is one of Europe's foremost research universities. Research activities at the University of Leiden cover eleven research profiles that transcend traditional boundaries between research fields and faculties. Leiden University's main research areas include Asian modernities and traditions, Global Interaction of people, culture and power through the ages, Language diversity and Political Legitimacy with regard to institutions and identities.
