Who We Are
The Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) is dedicated to the study of critical issues affecting the countries of Asia and their regional and global relations. Our scholar community is comprised of distinguished academics and practitioners in government, business, and civil society. Through policy-relevant research, publications, education, public programs, and international collaborations, we address pressing challenges in a world in which Asia plays an increasingly central role.
What We Do
Pursue and publish interdisciplinary, social science-oriented scholarship from regional and global perspectives on issues of vital importance to the economies, foreign affairs, health, politics, and societal transitions of the Asia-Pacific.
Support the next generation of Asia experts by offering fellowship and training opportunities to academics and practitioners, teaching Stanford courses, and bringing Asia-Pacific topics into high school and community college classrooms.
Policy & Outreach
