About us

Politics and Policy in Southeast and East Asia specialist group aims to provide a hub for scholarly activity in and of the Asia-Pacific. The group provides a forum for scholars of East and South East Asia, both within the field of politics and related disciplines, to discuss current research, explore, and develop future research.

We welcome all academics with a research interest in Southeast and East Asia or in areas linked to Southeast and East Asia, to join the group. This includes teachers and postgraduate students. Membership is also open to practitioners working in or on Southeast and East Asia at all levels. We welcome members from outside the UK.

Each year we will host a number of panels at the PSA Annual Conference, and our own one day annual conference.

If you have any events, conferences, publications or news that you would like to advertise, please email the group convenors Leanne-Marie Cotter (l.cotter@sheffield.ac.uk) or Liam McCarthy-Cotter (liam.mccarthy-cotter@ntu.ac.uk).
