About ISA-AP

Objects and Purposes of the ISA Asia Pacific Region

  • To foster closer cooperative and complementary contacts among those having an interest in the scholarly study of international relations, in part by means of encouraging, sponsoring, promoting, organizing and conducting professional activities which cut across disciplinary lines.
  • To facilitate professional exchanges and the diffusion of knowledge and information about developments in the study of international relations.
  • To organize meetings and otherwise to provide opportunities for professional contacts and communications among the members. To encourage and promote research in international studies within and between interested disciplines.
  • To establish and maintain contact with all disciplinary societies, conferences and other professional and specialized organizations (including government agencies, international organizations and endeavors such as CSCAP and OCIS) which have a scholarly interest in the study of international relations, and to foster such studies within and among these groups.

While the ISA Asia Pacific includes within the scope of its scholarly concerns the policies of national governments, international organizations and non-governmental groups which have a bearing on international relations, the ISA Asia Pacific as such will not advocate, promote or take a take in favor of or against any such policy, nor will any member appear in the name of ISA Asia Pacific to so advocate, promote or take a stand.
