|Every year, the Ritsumeikan Center for Asia Pacific Studies (RCAPS) holds an international Asia Pacific Conference (AP Conference) aiming at becoming a Center of Excellence. This year’s AP Conference consisted of two parts. One part was a “Graduate Student Workshop.” The other part consisted of regular panel sessions. The two parts simultaneously took place on the APU campus, with overlapping schedules. The theme for the workshop was “Disaster Management and Japan”, and the theme for the regular panel sessions was study fields relating to the Asia Pacific. Thank you all for your participation.
