In honor of the launch of the new South Asian Voices website, the SAV editorial team looks back at SAV‘s evolution since its start in August 2013. Over the past eight years SAV has transformed from a blog into a dynamic platform for informed debate and analysis on South Asian strategic affairs. We are thrilled to launch our new website, which reflects the evolution of SAV as a platform, with newly named topic areas to showcase a diversity of content, highlight our special series and initiatives, and capture the variety of strategic analysis featured on SAV.

Join us as we look back on SAV over the years, and look ahead to the new initiatives and innovative content for the years ahead.

Innovative Analysis on South Asia

In the past eight years, South Asian Voices has provided a platform for innovative, original, and thought-provoking analysis on strategic affairs in South Asia. Look back at some of SAV‘s most popular content below:

Long-Form Analysis, Special Series, and Initiatives

To enhance dialogue across borders, South Asian Voices regularly publishes special series and initiatives featuring a collection of takes from analysts across the subcontinent, discussing the region’s most pertinent strategic and security issues. See below for a selection of our series, featuring analysis from emerging and senior scholars.

A Community of Visiting Fellows

The South Asian Voices visiting fellowship is offered annually to outstanding scholars, analysts, and students dedicated to the study of South Asia. Hosted by the Stimson Center in Washington DC, the year-long fellowship combines professional development of research, writing, and public speaking skills with extensive exposure to the D.C. policy community. 

Since 2014, the Stimson Center South Asia Program has hosted 43 South Asian Voices Visiting Fellows. During their fellowship, fellows contribute regularly to SAV and develop policy memos published through the Stimson Center.
