Organization

Inya Institute is a Yangon-based higher learning institute dedicated to advancing the social sciences, the arts and humanities as they are related to Myanmar. It is a non-political, non-religious, non-profit, and non-degree granting organisation. It seeks to build research and intellectual capacity for young local researchers, to foster scholarly exchange between local and international researchers, and to create original scholarship for international and local scholars. It further aims to raise the general public’s understanding of the country’s multi-faceted cultural legacy.
The institute’s daily activities are managed and coordinated by a Yangon-based group of Myanmar and International researchers. The institute which is accountable and transparent to its donors and sponsors is responsible for drafting proposals submitted to grant-giving institutions, grant-reporting, and annual accounting and reporting of the institute’s general activities. The development of the institute’s training and research activities is overseen by an Academic Board composed of fourteen internationally recognized academics (5 academics at US universities, 3 at Japanese universities, 2 at Australian universities, 1 at a UK university, 1 at a French university, 1 at a Swiss University, and 1 academic in Myanmar). An Advisory Board is being formed so as to strengthen the financial and operational capacities of the institute and define its strategic orientations.
