Covering more than 50 countries – spanning from the ruins of Jordan in the West, the jungles of the Timor-Leste in the East, to the mountains of Japan in the north, the IAPSS Asia Outreach Program provides an alternative avenue to students, as well as early-career researchers, and academics, to discuss key-important political issues across Asia. Furthermore, IAPSS Asia focuses more on the socio-politico side of Asian Studies, which has predominantly been the central academic discipline in studying the region.

Considering its cultural, social, as well as political diversity, the IAPSS Asia Outreach Program aims to redefine the borders of the region by providing extensive academic, as well as social support to the studentry. This support would allow us to create a much more inclusive, and active community. Such initiatives would include our dedicated Audio and Video Podcasts, which will give an opportunity to all Political Science students to share their own stories; their own experiences, and purviews on some of the most pressing political and social issues of our time. The Asia Outreach Program’s Academic Blog, on the other hand, would allow students to publish their own research written in their own language, with the help of the proposed Translation Committee. Different projects will also be launched through our Country Coordinators from India, Japan, Mongolia, and Uzbekistan throughout the mandate.
