About Us

Welcome to the Ritsumeikan Center for Asia Pacific Studies (RCAPS)

The Ritsumeikan Center for Asia Pacific Studies (RCAPS) was established in July 1996 as a lead-up to the opening of Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU).

Aiming to be a "Center of Excellence" for Asia Pacific Studies, RCAPS holds research meetings and international symposiums, conducts research projects and joint research, disseminates APU research results, and strengthens the network of researchers and research institutions around Japan and across the world.

In addition to inheriting the results of research on the Asia Pacific performed at Ritsumeikan Academy, one of the main goals of RCAPS is to develop "Asia Pacific Studies" as a new, policy oriented academic field, for the purpose of realizing sustainable development and harmonious coexistence in the Asia Pacific region.
