Our mission is to increase knowledge of understudied regions of the global south through the advancement of scientific inquiry in these areas. We believe in the value of basic research – description, theory development, and empirical testing of hypotheses – for understanding society and that the best way to improve our collective understanding of understudied areas is to promote independent, rigorous research.  To that end, we:

  • Conduct scholarly research on topics within our areas of expertise.
  • Team with researchers who want to study “frontier regions” but lack the time, access, or expertise in primary data collection to do so.
  • Collect, curate, and disseminate high-quality research on the region.
