About Sydasien

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

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 in the neighbouring Nordic countries as well. We run the website/online journal Sydasien.se and publish two printed magazines each year. In 2020 we will publish a magazine (June) and a Sydasien yearbook 2020-2021 (at the end of the year).

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.
