The Institute of Mongolian, Buddhist and Tibetan Studies is one of the leading centers of Asian and Siberian Studies in Russia. Within the focus of its research activities are the place of Inner Asia in the dialogue of the civilizations of the East and the West, issues of social, economic and cultural interactions of the peoples, states and societies of Asia. The research agenda of the Institute includes as a main subject a long-standing strategy of co-existence of peoples, interaction of various ethnic groups and cultural entities in polyethnic regions. The peoples of the Baikal region living side by side for many centuries have their own history, their own experience of preservation of values and traditions. A unique symbiosis of cultures and religious views of the East and the West has come into existence as a result of mutual impact of the Inner Asian and European civilizations in this geopolitically important area. This area is a part of the contiguous Mongolian cultural entity; hither the stream of outer migrations is directed, and all this inevitably determines economical, social and cultural trends. We believe that objective research of all these issues contributes to the positive dialogue between the East and the West.
