The Mongolia & Inner Asia Studies Unit is an interdisciplinary research unit at the University of Cambridge based within the Department of Social Anthropology. It has become a centre of international importance for studies on Inner Asia with an area of interest centred on Mongolia and extending across the region of the great steppes to the Himalayas.

The Unit supports and trains students from Inner Asia and has links with a network of key scholars working in the region which has enabled the development of a broad programme of research activities and and a visiting scholar programme.
