We consider string theory on a background of the form AdS3 × N. Our aim is to give a description of the dual CFT in a general set up. With the requirement that we have N = 2 supersymmetry in spacetime, we provide evidence that the dual CFT is in the moduli space of a certain symmetric product Mp/Sp. On the way to show this, we reproduce some recent results on string propagation on AdS3, and extend them to the superstring.
