The Initiative for the Study of Asian Catholics (ISAC) is an international network hosted by the Asia Research Institute to foster social scientific research focused on Asian Catholics in contemporary societies. With the aim of facilitating dialogue, generating new research projects, and contributing to already existing research in the Philippines, Hong Kong, India, and other places, it intends to expand and deepen conversations investigating the lived realities, socio-cultural contributions, and challenges faced by Asian Catholics at the local, national, regional, and global levels. While ISAC takes a multidisciplinary approach, it particularly encourages research on contemporary Asian Catholics from the perspectives of economy, environmental studies, anthropology, political sciences, art, and gender studies.
