The European Union Studies Association of Asia-Pacific (EUSAAP) is holding its first conference, hosted by the RMIT EU Centre and RMIT University.
The discussion on the emerging powers of Asia is well established. However, there have been few Asia Pacific platforms where academics can present their research into how the concept of the coming century as one which pivots around Asia impacts on Asia Pacific–EU relations. A growing emphasis on Asia as an economic and political powerhouse also has implications for how the EU deals with other regions and how other regions in turn align or realign their foreign policies.
This conference will be multidisciplinary in focus and applications from a wide range of fields are encouraged to develop a deeper understanding of the complexities of the relationship, and to understand the broad range of areas that can be impacted by international political and economic issues.
With Australia’s ties to the Pacific Islands we especially encourage Pacific Island researchers to engage EU Studies through this conference. This conference hopes to help overcome some of the geographical distance between Europe and the Asia Pacific nations and investigate ways in which they can and do communicate and interact on the world stage.
Deadline for online-paper submissions: 31 January 2014
