Development of Human resources and Strategies for Education on the Stereotypical Images and Cultural Differences between Europe and South Asia or DEVHAS in a collaborative project with the University of Gent and funded by the European Union.
The contacts between Europe and South Asia have grown dramatically during the last decade. Therefore, knowledge of the stereotypical images and cultural differences between both regions has become essential to all sectors of society. The DEVHAS project trains a core group of young South Asian and European scholars to teach and popularise innovative theories on stereotyping and cultural difference.
The core group is working on the following sub-themes:
Religion and the South Asian Traditions
Caste, Socio-economic Inequality and Development
Pluralism, Tolerance and Conflict

This is a link to a forum which allows the core group to discuss intermediate results and draft versions of articles. Representatives from the business community, political sector, educational sector and the media are warmly invited to join the discussion.
