Conference Director, Dorea Ho, an undergraduate studying in the College, said that this year’s conference will focus on the theme of ‘pushing boundaries’.
“This is the third conference of its kind hosted by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and will see 100 delegates from around the globe discuss the significant and controversial issues facing the Asia Pacific region in the 21st century,” she said.
“The conference has been built for postgraduate and later-year undergraduate students. In addition to lectures, debates and panels, students will have the chance to engage with diplomats from the region, and take part in challenging and interactive sessions focusing on peacebuilding and blogging.
“With ANU home to the largest concentration of experts on Asia and the Pacific, the conference gives participants a really long- lasting and unique experience as well as the opportunity to engage with some of the world’s best researchers and scholars on the region.
“Best of all, the week will not only be incredibly stimulating, but a whole lot of fun.”
