SOAS uses its expertise in Africa, Asia and the Middle East as a lens through which to interrogate the planetary questions of our time.

SOAS is home to the leading research and expertise on the global issues of today. SOAS students engage with our academics on these issues throughout their study. SOAS is uniquely placed to inform and shape current thinking about the economic, political, cultural, security and religious challenges of our world.
