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.

Membership of the Society is free and bring with it many significant benefits, including exclusive early access to our weekly podcast Policy Forum Pod, 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. 

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 challenges throughout the region, and the world. Published authors include distinguished academics, former prime ministers, people employed by NGOs and postgraduate students.
