The Centre for India-Australia Studies (CIAS)

The Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS) is the first and only Centre with a focus on the India-Australia bilateral relationship that is embedded in an Indian Higher Education Institution. This emphasises the scope for an increase in momentum, from an Indian perspective, for this important bilateral relationship.

With this strategic bilateral relationship becoming of an increasing importance, there is scope for numerous stakeholders, not just in Government, to strive for a deeper and more meaningful engagement. CIAS is focused on building stronger links between Indian and Australian:

(i) Institutions
(ii) Researchers and Academics
(iii) Students and Youth
(iv) Businesses
(v) Government and Policy-makers.
