The Department of Asian and African Studies was established in 2014 with the mission to foster high quality interdisciplinary research of Asian and African countries. It is based on two pillars: long and distinctive tradition of Asian and African Studies in St. Petersburg and interdisciplinary approach to education promoted by the Higher School of Economics. The goal of the Department is to provide students with a broad knowledge and understanding of specific regions of Asia and Africa, to promote communication and cooperation among all scholars interested in these areas at the Higher School of Economics and to encourage international academic exchange.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate multi-disciplinary discussion of research experience, theoretical, methodological and empirical findings in the field of Asian and African minorities’ studies. In Asia and Africa, where the majority of states are demographically diverse, racial, ethnic, religious minority groups are often subjects of discrimination and participants of armed conflicts. Such conflicts, being domestic in their nature, have a devastating impact not only on populations of host-countries, but also on neighboring states, regions and the whole international system by producing refugee flows and destabilizing international economy.
