Asia and the Pacific Policy Society
The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society reaches out to a community of scholars and policymakers throughout the region and the world by establishing a membership-based association. The Society is the first international association to link groups working across disciplines on the key economic, political science, governance, development and the environment issues in the Asia and the Pacific region.
The establishment of the Society also provides a platform to broaden support base for the journal, Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies, and widen the disciplinary focus of supporting scholars and policy makers, positioning research on the region within the mainstream of public policy.
Membership is extended in association with Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies to the large Crawford School community, including its extensive links into Australia and the Asia and the Pacific policy world, from academia, NGOs and government, and to all other interested researchers. Alumni of the Crawford School and The Australian National University form a Society nucleus that extends to every country in the world. Membership requires a commitment to work with the growing policy community in our region. The standing of the Society is reinforced by the establishment of a body of Society Fellows comprising leading academics and policymakers from around the world.
An annual conference of the Society will be held within the region each year. The inaugural conference was held on 6–7 September 2012 in Canberra. The annual conference provides an important opportunity for scholars from the region to meet and challenge policymakers, as well as their academic peers.
