First chair for Mongolia in the Netherlands

11 December 2013

Tjalling Halbertsma has become professor by special appointment for the ‘Chair for East Asian Studies, with a focus on modern-day Mongolia’. This is the first chair in the Netherlands for Mongolia. The University of Groningen is focussing strongly on East Asia (China ((Shanghai and Beijing), Japan, Korea and Mongolia). In 2013 the Centre for East Asian Studies Groningen (CEASG) was established and in September 2014 the CEASG will begin a Master’s degree programme entitled East Asian Studies. The chair has been endowed by the Ubbo Emmius Fund with support from the ING Bank (chief sponsor), the Jack Weatherford Foundation, Mongolia Opportunities Partners and the Riverbed Foundation.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
