Annual Report
2011
In 1967, QAU was authorized by the Ministry of Education, Government of Pakistan, to establish a Centre for the Study of
Civilizations of Central Asia in order to cooperate with UNESCO as a participating member representing Pakistan in its
program on Central Asia. In UNESCO, there was proposal to expand the scope of the Centre and make a comparative study of
the civilizations of Asia.
With the consent of the Government of Pakistan, QAU accepted the proposal and accordingly the name of the Centre was
changed to Taxila Institute of Asian Civilizations (TIAC). The syndicate of the University approved the project, thus accepted the
TIAC as a constituent part of the University and permitted it to enrol students for M.Phil.and Ph.D. programs. Accordingly, TIAC
got approved its courses for M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. in 2010 and enrolled students in all the three programmes in 2010-2011.
The whole objective of the TIAC is now changed from the history given above in regard to its predecessor, Center for the Study
of the Civilizations of Central Asia. Earlier, the Centre was primarily concerned with Central Asia while the focus of theTIAC is on
the comparative studies of the civilizations of entire Asia. Earlier the focus was mainly on seminars, conferences and contacts
with Central Asia which culminated in the production of the history of Central Asia.Now the focus is on field work.
