Pne of the world's leading institutions for the study of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Of major relevance for the British deep state

The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS University of London)[1] is a public research university in London, England, and a member institution of the federal University of London.

SOAS is one of the world's leading institutions for the study of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.[2] As such, it has major relevance for the British deep state

The School of Oriental Studies was founded by the British state as an instrument to strengthen Britain's political, commercial and military presence in Asia and Africa. It would do so by providing instruction to colonial administrators (Colonial Service and Imperial Civil Service), commercial managers and military officers, but also to missionaries, doctors and teachers, in the language of that part of Asia or Africa to which each was being posted, together with an authoritative introduction to the customs, religion, laws and history of the people whom they were to govern or among whom they would be working.[3]
