"The aim of the French Interdisciplinary Mission in Sindh (MIFS) is to bring to light
the historical and sociological heritage of Pakistan which, by and large, has been
largely neglected by researchers. Pakistan's rich heritage stems largely from its
geographic position as a hinge between the Middle East, Central Asia and the
Indian subcontinent. To date, the media and, to a lesser extent, academia, are
largely responsible for having circulated catastrophic approaches on this region."

The MIFS also runs a scientific blog:
Sindhi Studies Group. Society, Culture and Territory
"The aim of this scholarly blog is to develop a platform bringing together social scientists interested in Sindh, a region located in southern Pakistan, and its diaspora. The goal of our study group is to share and disseminate a wide range of information on the evolution of Sindhi society while exploring the interrelated dynamics in the religious, political and cultural arenas."
