CSEAS continues to collaborate with the National Resource Center for East-European and Russian/Eurasian Studies at the University of Chicago to examine Islam at the peripheries of the Islamic World: SE Asia and SE Europe. On March 30, 2009, a joint colloquium, “Islam at the Edges,” was held at NIU with speakers from the United States, France, Eastern Europe, and Southeast Asia.

A second colloquium on SE Europe and SE Asia in Malaysia will be tentatively held at the National University of Malaysia, with Yale University’s Council for SE Asian Studies serving as an additional sponsor.
