Call For Papers

The International Academic Forum (IAFOR), in conjunction with its global university and institutional partners, is proud to announce The Asia-Pacific Conference on Security and International Relations 2016 (APSEC2016).

Publish before a global audience. Present in a supportive environment. Network and create new relationships. Hear the latest research. Explore the beautiful and exciting city of Osaka, Japan. Join a global academic community.


Conference Theme

The APSEC2016 conference theme is "Fearful futures – Peace and Security in Asia". Whether military incursions in the blue waters of the South China Sea, ethnic violence in Southeast Asia or the threat of nuclear proliferation in Northeast Asia, there is an increasingly uneasy jostling for power and position in the Asia-Pacific.

In the context of rising global economic uncertainty, with a background of religious, cultural and societal fractures, the rise of nationalism and authoritarianism is a symptom detected across the states in the region, including those which are democracies. Perceived threats from traditional and non-state actors are being used to justify stifling dissent, increasing surveillance, and the removing of freedoms, as security and defence apparatus are turned as much on enemies within a state as outside.

This international and interdisciplinary conference on Asia-Pacific Security and International Relations will bring together a range of academics, policy makers, and practitioners to discuss the evolving issues in security and international relations in the Asia-Pacific. Relationships between China, Japan and the US will be explored, as well as in and between those countries and the rest of this volatile region, as states and peoples fight for power, influence, resources, and basic human rights.


Submit your research and join the discussion. Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted by August 1, 2016.
