Asia Pacific Week
ANU’s Asia Pacific Week brings leading experts on the Asia Pacific region together with 100 of the world’s top students to engage in a series of dynamic discussions and events focused on developments and trends in what has been called the focus region of the 21st Century.
From lectures by ANU faculty largely regarded as among the world’s leading experts on Asia and the Pacific to exercises and panel discussions that enable participants to gain a greater understanding of the realities of policy making in an imperfect world, Asia Pacific Week delegates have the opportunity to learn from and interact with a broad cross-section of academics, Australian political leaders, and journalists. Interested students have the opportunity to present their research on related panels during the week although such is by no means required to attend as a delegate.
Information, including applications and travel grant support, about Asia Pacific Week 2013 is now available.
