Patterns of Influences Affecting South Asian U of N Chronicles

  • John Mraz

Abstract

This study aims to understand patterns of influences in South Asia that contributed to University of the Nations course records to be missing, particularly between 1983 and 1999, when the additional factor of leadership turnover made it increasingly difficult to reconstruct missing records. Former and current leaders were interviewed. Most of the influences identified can be broadly categorised as 1) issues of primary focus, 2) the U of N not understood and not seen as a realistic future option, 3) ‘recordkeeping’ seen as a necessary burden, and 4) issues of isolation, language, nationalism and ‘church-views.’ Recommendations follow.
