ABOUT THE ASIA AND THE PACIFIC POLICY SOCIETY: The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society reaches out to a community of scholars and policymakers by establishing a membership-based association. The Society is one of the first international associations to link groups working across disciplines on the key economic, political, governance, development and environment issues in the Asia and the Pacific region.

The establishment of the Society also provides a platform to broaden the support base for Crawford School's new 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.

In addition to linking scholars and policymakers together, the Society also harnesses and positions the most up-to-date research on the region within the mainstream of public policy. Membership extends to the large Crawford School community, including its extensive links into Australia and the Asia-Pacific policy world, across academia, NGOs and government. Alumni of Crawford School and ANU will also form a part of the Society and extend its reach to every country in the world. The standing of the Society is reinforced by the appointment of distinguished Fellows comprising leading academics and policymakers from around the world.
