About the Society

The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society is a community of scholars, policymakers, researchers and students. It is the first international association to link people engaged in public policy working across academic disciplines in the region.

The Society supports the journal, Asia and the Pacific Policy Studies, and works to position research on the region within the mainstream of public policy.

Membership of the Society is free and bring with it many significant benefits, including exclusive early access to content from Crawford School publications, such as Advance magazine, priority invitations to selected events, a weekly e-newsletter with stories, offers and research, and networking opportunities with policy-engaged peers and the region’s leading policy experts. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss papers in Asia & the Pacific Policy Studies in our members-only LinkedIn group.

Membership is available to the ANU community, non-government organisations, government, policymakers, students and people interested in public policy.

Society members and fellows include some of the world’s leading academics and policymakers. By joining the Society you can play an important role with the growing policy community in our region. The Society’s website Policy Forum is a public policy website dedicated to Asia and the Pacific. Policyforum.net publishes essays, opinions and ideas on public policy challenge throughout the region, and the world. Published authors include distinguished academics, former prime ministers, people employed by NGOs and postgraduate students.

A conference is held each year, providing an important opportunity for scholars to meet and challenge policymakers, as well as their academic peers.
