Welcome message

The Asia Pacific Sociological Association (APSA) is an organization of scholars of higher education institutions (universities, graduate schools and research institutes) that conduct education and research in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to share and exchange academic achievements and to train young researchers.

Nowadays, a big social transformation centering on the Asia-Pacific region has occurred. While international mobility of population, knowledge, capital, information, and things has increased significantly over the last few decades, various issues associated with these trends have been uninvestigated. Sociology and social science need to tackle these global issues by examining each study.

On behalf of APSA, I am truly honored to welcome you to our association. We are thrilled to discuss and explore each study that demonstrates potential for contributing to addressing sociological concerns.
