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.

Tidskriften Sydasien rapporterar om Indien, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan och Maldiverna. Sedan 1977 följer Sydasiens nätverk av skribenter och fotografer det som sker i regionen. Vårt gemensamma mål är att erbjuda kryddstarkt innehåll och bidra till fördjupade kunskaper.
