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 fifth year, the 2015 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 2015 is 'Roads Less Travelled'. The conference will throw new light on issues and puzzles which conventional study of the region has struggled to answer. Aiding delegates will be ANU’s unrivalled expertise in the study of the region and the outstanding resources available in Australia's capital.

Conferences in previous years have included prominent and distinguished policymakers, academics, diplomats and politicians including Peter Drysdale, Michael Wesley, Zhao Jianfei, Stephen Howes, The Honourable Gareth Evans AO QC, Admiral Chris Barrie AC, The Right Honourable Malcolm Fraser AC CH GCL PC and The Honourable Bob Hawke AC GCL.

The Asia Pacific Week 2015 program is currently in the process of being confirmed. Details will be uploaded below as they become available.
