Founded in 2011, South Asia Journal (SAJ) is a policy magazine focused on issues relating to South Asia. Bearing no political affiliation, the journal’s goal is to provide discerning, critical perspectives on the South Asian sub-continent and its evolving relationship to the broader world. SAJ aims to highlight emerging regional trends, especially issues which call for more emphasis among decision makers and policy framers.
