Join us for lively discussion as our panel debates the challenges and opportunities for policy studies in the ‘Asian Century.’
Is this the ‘Asian Century’?
How does policy studies need to adapt or change to maintain relevance?
How is the conduct of public administration changing in light of political, cultural and economic shifts towards Asia?
And what does the ‘Asian Century’ mean for the content of public policy?
