Asia in 2015 and Beyond

New Challenges and Governance Agendas





Asia has come a long way in overcoming legacy issues and looking to a shared future to advance prosperity for all. This year, 2015, will herald an unprecedented opportunity for the countries of Asia to take far-reaching, long-overdue actions to secure their future well-being.


Despite positive trends of this Asian Century, challenges lie ahead. They range from peace and security to development and governance. Thus, this is a moment to join hands and renew commitments for development, regional integration, human security, democratization and conflict management. To address those challenges and agendas, the Royal University of Phnom Penh in collaboration with Ewha Womans University will convene the 9th Congress of the Asian Political and International Association (APISA) on 11-12 September 2015 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.




APISA 9 seeks to contribute to scholarship about Asia, encompassing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research, especially with regard to issues of development, regional integration, democratization, human security and conflict management.


Therefore, APISA 9 welcomes panels and papers which reflect the said objectives with a goal of producing theoretically-informed analyses of single and/or comparative case studies about Asia, and of showcasing new perspectives to current issues and themes pertaining to Asia. Papers from this conference are to be published afterwards in APISA-connected  journals or edited volumes.
