The Nordic Himalaya Research Network seeks to build collaboration and scholarly exchange among Himalayan researchers of different disciplinary backgrounds and with different regional expertise: It connects Nordic scholars who work on India, China, Nepal and Bhutan but who are otherwise part of more nationally-oriented research networks. The Himalayas, as a region, traverses national borders and addresses issues of minority populations and peripheral societies with its syncretic mixture of political and religious systems, ethnic groups and unique environmental features. The aim of the network is to strengthen Himalayan studies in the Nordic region and to help to facilitate international collaboration.
