Welcome to the Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies

The Institute of Asia and Pacific Studies (IAPS) was created to provide a focus for interdisciplinary research and teaching on Asia.

Based in the School of Politics and International Relations, IAPS provides an interdisciplinary forum for academic discussions on politics, economics and social developments in Asia. Our interdisciplinary research and teaching programmes are informed by the members of IAPS' long standing engagement with the region.

Under its Director, Professor Katharine Adeney, IAPS welcomes proposals to form external networks and collaborations. Members of staff currently work with (among others) the Royal United Services Institute, the University of the Philippines, the Australian National University, the University of Bristol, the University of Edinburgh, Delhi University, Hyderabad University, Burdwan University and the London School of Economics.
