Abstract

This chapter provides a brief outline of Borneo-related research that has been conducted at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and in particular at the Institute of Asian Studies (IAS) within the university. It includes an analysis of earlier Borneo research conducted through UBD and a description of the current relevant research clusters and topics. The chapter explains the role of the institute in Borneo, in particular its participation in the Borneo Research Council and the creation of a Borneo Studies Network that links the IAS with other research institutes across Borneo. Much of the research that has been conducted thus far in the institute is reflected in the IAS Working Paper series, and a description of the content of Borneo-themed papers is included. The IAS is also working on a book series, as this collection attests, and that is also explained, as is the weekly seminar series that has become an integral part of the institute’s life.
