All the research centres specialized in Asian Studies as mentioned below are located on the new Condorcet Campus in Aubervilliers, in the new EHESS building since July 2021. Thus, the courses related to the Master in Asian Studies and taught by EHESS professors will henceforth take place almost entirely on the campus.

- EHESS Institutional partners in Asia
Agreements with foreign universities or research institutions promote the realization of research, training and knowledge-sharing projects through the reciprocal invitation of teacher-researchers, the elaboration of joint projects, the organization of summer schools, colloquia or any other activities on which the parties agree. The majority of these agreements encourage student mobility.
The university partners concerned can be located on a dynamic map. A description of the partnership is available by clicking on each partner.
