Who We Are:

The South Asia Interest Group (SAIG) is a strong community of researchers, students, faculty, and visiting faculty whose research highlights the challenges and issues of development and education within South Asia and its diaspora across the world.  

What We Do:

SAIG is an active platform of academic engagement and the group members has made panel presentations at international conferences such as Congress (the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences ), CIES (Comparative and International Education Society), and CASID (The Canadian Association for the Study of International Development). SAIG has also organized a mini conference within the 10th International Labour and Employment Relations Association, Regional Congress for the Americas (ILERA). Recently, some SAIG members have collaboratively written journal articles to highlight the challenges of development and education within the region.

What We Plan To Do:

Besides the on-going activities, our future activities include the organization of an international conference under CIDE, a virtual repository of scholarly work, guest speaker sessions, webinar, podcast series and social events.
