ISA Asia-Pacific Conference 2016, Hong Kong

Organized by AIS in cooperation with us, over 400 scholars from around the world took part in the ISA Asia-Pacific Conference held on 25-27 June 2016. The intensive and vibrant discussions made the conference one of the biggest regional ISA conferences ever held and one of the largest recently hosted by CityU. In order to extend links to scholars and institutions whose concerns resonate with those of our Centre, SEARC sponsored early career scholars from Southeast Asia at the Conference to promote research on the region and in return, they contributed working papers to us.
