Documentation section

The purchasing policy of books for the documentation section must respect the three following guidelines:

  1. Books with an emphasis on contemporary issues, situations and questions in the fields of research developed by IRASEC: political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, contemporary history and geography
  2. Publications dealing with the region’s 11 countries
  3. Cross-cutting themes related to Southeast Asia that adhere to the academic areas and projects defined by IRASEC

While the number of items remains modest, IRASEC’s Documentation Section is unique thanks to its specific focus on contemporary issues, questions and situations.

The Documentation Section’s books and journals in French and English may be used on site. A reading space is provided during the Institute’s opening hours.
