The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center (Shorenstein APARC) is excited to announce that its Corporate Affiliates Program has been renamed the Global Affiliates Program effective September 1, 2018.
The new name reflects the program’s evolution over the course of its history. In particular, it more accurately describes the increasingly diverse base of Asian organizations that partner with APARC as affiliate members. Our affiliates span a broad continuum including governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations, and for-profit establishments.
As the new academic year gets underway, the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center’s Corporate Affiliates Program is excited to welcome its new class of fellows to Stanford University:
China was for hundreds of years almost entirely an agricultural society, but modern industrialization changed that dynamic, and the impact on health has been startling.
Urbanization, population aging and changes in lifestyle (from mobile to sedentary) have led a transition from an acute to chronic disease-ridden society. Now, 10 percent of China’s adult population is diabetic or pre-diabetic—holding the number one place in the world.
The Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University is pleased to announce its search for two 2015–16 Shorenstein Postdoctoral Fellows in Contemporary Asia. The award will be given to two junior scholars, who have completed their Ph.D. (with degree conferral and approval by August 31, 2015).

Three visiting fellows, Tetsuo Ishiai of Tokyo, Japan, Tejas Mehta of Mumbai, India, and Wendy (Wei) Wang of Beijing, China, spoke with Shorenstein APARC about their experience in the Corporate Affiliates Program from 2013-14.
Kenji Yanada, a visiting fellow in Shorenstein APARC’s Corporate Affiliates Program, has pursued a wide breadth of interests while at Stanford this year. He is a member of Stanford’s Symphonic Chorus and is researching international financial regulation. Yanada will present his research and perform with the choir again this spring
