The East Asia Student Association Lund is a politically and religiously unaffiliated student association. We exist to, through various activities, promote an academic and socio-cultural exchange between members from different backgrounds. We believe in human rights, equality, democracy, and sustainability.
EASA Lund membership is not limited on the basis of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, color, age, gender, gender identity, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or disability. We do not represent any specific group, nationality, culture or ethnicity.

สมาคมนักศึกษาเอเชียตะวันออกแห่งมหาวิทยาลัยลุนด์เป็นสมาคมนักศึกษาที่ไม่เกี่ยวข้องกับด้านการเมืองและศาสนา สมาคมนี้จัดตั้งเพื่อส่งเสริมความสนใจของนักศึกษาเกี่ยวกับเอเชียตะวันออกและเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ พวกเราเชื่อมั่นในสิทธิมนุษยชน ความเสมอภาค ประชาธิปไตยและความยั่งยืน
East Asia in the context of EASA includes both East and Southeast Asia. This means we see East Asia as containing the People’s Republic Of China, Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, Mongolia, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Republic of Korea (South Korea), Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, East Timor, Brunei, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
The reason this association is being established is that we see a great need for a platform for students interested in the East Asian region. East and Southeast Asia consist of over 2 billion people who represent various cultures, political and economic systems, and individual interests and dreams. Regardless of where you are from, there is always more to learn about the region.
At Lund University, there are several programmes focused in one way or another on Asia: the MSc programme in East and Southeast Asian Studies; the MSc in International Economics with a focus on China; MSc in Chinese Language and Linguistics; and MSc in Japanese Language and Linguistics. Furthermore, there is a vast amount of international students and exchange students from East and Southeast Asia. Apart from this, there are students who do not have a close connection to Asia via academics or nationality, but simply hold a personal interest in East and Southeast Asia. All of these students would benefit personally, academically and in their career from developing their knowledge and understanding of the region as well as meeting actors in business and politics in the region. The closer our connections are, the more understanding and peace is promoted.
