About Us

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

Now in its eighth year, the 2018 conference will continue the tradition of bringing together students, young professionals, policymakers and senior officials of the highest calibre for a week of stimulating discussion and debate.

The theme of Asia Pacific Week 2018 is ‘Untold Stories’. The conference will examine the myths and misconceptions regarding the Asia Pacific region, and dissect existing stereotypes. Asia Pacific Week provides delegates with access to the ANU's unrivalled expertise in the study of the region and the outstanding resources available in Australia's capital.
