Cosmopolis (2012-2017) unites several research and educational programmes into one community. It is attached to the department of Colonial and Global History at the Institute for History of Leiden University. As a schoarly community, it follows in the footsteps of the TANAP (1999-2006) and ENCOMPASS (2006-2012) programmes that were executed from 1999 onward.
From September 2012 the Institute for History will continue running the successful Foundation Year that prepares MA and PhD students from Asia and elsewhere to work with Dutch historical source material.
