Since 1995 the Centre, located in a building in the heart of Hanoi, has given new impetus to French research in Vietnamese studies, allowing the EFEO's researchers to pursue research projects in Vietnam and linking French (EHESS, EPHE, CNR, INALCO, Universities...), European and international scholars with their Vietnamese counterparts working in the humanities and social sciences.

The Centre's research interests focus on pre-modern and contemporary history, epigraphy, anthropology, and archaeology.

Current research program:

  • The Marches of the Dai Viêt Kingdom: migration, contacts, and social/territorial transformations (including the multidisciplinary study of the Long Wall of Quang Ngai; Champa studies project)
  • Anthropology of relations between the state and the peasantry in water management (multidisciplinary study of the Phuoc Hoa irrigation system (Tay Ninh and Long An provinces)
  • Expertise and research on the Thang-Long imperial city site in Hanoi
  • Cooperation and research for the valorisation of Vietnamese archival heritage

In addition to these cooperation projects, training in methodology and on-site research is provided for young scholars at the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences and students in partner universities. Each year the Centre also welcomes doctoral students and EFEO scholarship holders working on related research.

In addition to the Corpus of Vietnamese Inscriptions (30 volumes), the publishing service of the Centre publishes books in two series : Bibliothèque vietnamienne (Vietnamese Library) and Pistes d'Histoire (Trails of History).

The Center's library has grown rapidly with the recent acquisition of the personal collections of Professors David G. Marr and Dang Phong. It now holds 10,000 volumes on the history and anthropology of Vietnam and neighbouring countries.
