New Frontiers: Technology, Politics, and Society in the Asia-Pacific

APARC Winter 2022 Webinar Series

From great-power contest to global trade and supply chains and from rising digital authoritarianism to climate change solutions and digital healthcare, advanced technologies are transforming social orders and international politics.

APARC’s 2022 winter webinar series, “New Frontiers: Technology, Politics, and Society in the Asia-Pacific,” explores these three intersecting areas in Asian affairs and U.S.-Asia relations.

Join our lineup of leading experts in examining the interconnections between technology and issues such as international security in the Indo-Pacific, democracy’s decline throughout Asia, the U.S.-China competition, innovation for healthy aging, and more.
