Welcome to the SOAS Blog

We are deeply passionate about inspiring the next generation to develop ideas to help build a fairer world.

SOAS academics weigh in on some of the most challenging issues of our time, from human rights and climate change, to decolonisation, race, identity and freedom of speech.

Our students provide regular analysis of the topical news stories of the day. And give advice on how to pursue careers after you graduate that make a real difference.
