Message from the AP-PPN Steering Committee


Dear Colleagues:


After a thorough vetting of several proposals received in answer to its call-for-conference-locations earlier this year, the steering committee of the Asia-Pacific Public Policy Network is pleased to announce the awarding of the next several AP-PPN Annual Meetings to:

2020 - University of Western Australia, Perth - Department of Political Science and International Relations; Local Organizer Jeanette Taylor

2021 - Education University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong - Department of Asian and Policy Studies; Local Organizer Darryl Jarvis


The exact dates and theme of these conferences will be announced in due course, although each will be held between February and April in keeping with the arrangements agreed to by the General Meeting in Hong Kong.


In addition, the Steering Committee is pleased to announce that the Institute of Public Policy at Hong Kong University of Science & Technology has agreed to serve as the home institution for the AP-PPN Secretariat going forward.


We would like to thank all of the proposers and look forward to working with the local organizers to ensure the continuing success of the AP-PPN over the near future and beyond.


Yours Sincerely
