Asia in International Affairs: The Asian Century? Call for Papers

The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs’ Student Association (NPSIA SA) invites the submission of abstracts for its inaugural Graduate Student Conference entitled “Asia in International Affairs”.

In line with this, we are inviting submissions from interested graduate students in international affairs, political science, public policy and other relevant disciplines.

Papers presented at the conference are also invited to be included in a subsequent publication of the conference proceedings.

Possible topics may include, but are not limited to, the following: the rising relevance of India and China, the politics of demographics, human rights, ASEAN, environmental security, ethnic cooperation/conflict and economic integration.
