Welcome

The Asian Political and International Studies Association (APISA) is Asia's leading academic organization dealing with political and international studies. Modeled on academic institutions in North America and Western Europe, APISA serves as an academic community for scholars working on Asia. The Association organizes the annual (biennial) congress and sponsors a range of academic and professional activities such as book awards, fellowships, regional and international conferences and workshops, and capacity building. APISA's objectives are:



  • Promotion of research and teaching in all areas of the social sciences, in particular disciplines related to political and international studies
     
  • Dissemination of research findings, institutional skills and syllabi
     
  • Promotion of cooperation and exchanges between individuals and institutions
     
  • Promotion of regional and sub-regional peace through epistemic communities
