About Us

Now in its tenth year, Asia Pacific Week is an interdisciplinary conference, bringing together high calibre students and young professionals from around the world. Highly regarded for its capacity to draw in diverse and innovative perspectives, Asia Pacific Week aims to equip delegates with the knowledge, skills and empathy, to become compassionate young leaders of change in the dynamic and evolving Asia Pacific region.

Under our 2020 theme of 'When Oceans Rise,' we will discuss emerging voices and hidden perspectives within the region. Asia Pacific Week consists of thought-provoking panels, debates, and workshops, as well as a vibrant social schedule, to provide delegates with opportunities to network and engage with like-minded peers, policymakers, world-class academics and leaders.

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.
