Asia Pacific Week is an interdisciplinary conference held annually in Canberra, Australia, aimed at high-achieving students and young professionals from around the world who have an academic interest in Asia and the Pacific. Asia Pacific Week is highly regarded for its capacity to draw in diverse and innovative perspectives to examine the changes occurring in the region.

The 2018 conference will explore the theme of ‘Untold Stories’: examining the myths and misconceptions of the Asia-Pacific region, and dissecting stereotypes. Asia Pacific Week examines significant and controversial issues facing the region, its place in the world and how it is shaping the globe. The 2018 conference will be held from 24 – 29 June 2018 at the Australian National University.

Panels, debates and other academic events, along with a vibrant social schedule, give student delegates and young professionals countless opportunities to network and engage with like-minded peers, diplomatic officials, policy makers, and ANU’s leading academics.

This unrivalled experience is set against the backdrop of Australia’s capital, at the nation’s premier university in Asia-Pacific studies - the Australian National University in Canberra.

Participation fees (this covers accommodation and food) are as follows:

  • International students - free
  • Australian domestic students - $50
  • Young professionals - $200
