York Asia Research Network (YARN)
The York Asia Research Network (YARN) is an interdisciplinary group for people across the University whose research interests relate to Asia.
YARN is supported and funded by the Research Centre for Social Sciences (ReCSS), Humanities Research Centre (HRC), Global York, as well as academic departments across the University of York.
Whilst YARN is essentially a region focussed network, the research interests of its members are consistent with the University of York’s seven interdisciplinary Research Themes. These themes help to align members' academic strengths to best meet the global challenges of today and thus address both the UN sustainability goals and the four strategic objectives of the UK Aid Strategy.
The research themes are:
- culture and communication;
- environmental sustainability and resilience;
- health and wellbeing;
- justice and equality;
- risk, evidence, and decision making;
- technologies for the future.
No, this infrastructure does not provide funding.
