Asia

As the world’s largest continent continues to develop, so do its educational and academic needs, and as the global economy recentres towards the Asia-Pacific region, the relevance and significance of IAFOR as an interdisciplinary think tank for both Asia and the West grows.

IAFOR's Asian Conference Series, held in Tokyo, Osaka and Kobe (Japan) and Hong Kong (Hong Kong SAR), is the ideal forum in which to discuss emerging regional and global issues, and to keep up to date with the latest interdisciplinary research across a range of academic fields.
