About Us

The Australian National University's Asia Pacific Week is an interdisciplinary, student-run conference aimed at high-achieving and highly motivated students from around the world with an interest in Asia and the Pacific.

Now in its seventh year, the 2017 conference will continue the tradition of bringing together students, policymakers and senior officials of the highest calibre for a week of stimulating discussion and debate.

The theme of Asia Pacific Week 2017 is ‘A Changing Landscape’. The conference will draw in diverse and innovative perspectives to examine the changes occurring in the Asia-Pacific region and the steps that must be taken to ensure its stability and growth. Aiding delegates will be ANU's unrivalled expertise in the study of the region and the outstanding resources available in Australia's capital.
