1. CONFERENCE THEME
"Revitalization and Development"
Global humanitarian responses to crises are often quite high in the time immediately following great tragedy. Years later as much of the world forgets this aid declines and the hardest hit are often left to revitalize their areas alone. Efforts to revitalize and develop areas around the Asia Pacific deal with a broad spectrum of issues. Economic development and revitalization must tackle the complexities of environmental degradation, human rights and humanitarian concerns, access to funding, government and international political controversies, as well as citizen activism and participation.
This year's Asia Pacific Conference invites presenters under the broad theme of Revitalization and Economic Development to better understand the complexities involved and help solve some of the problems faced. The conference invites participants from fields of economic development, tourism studies, environmental studies, international relations, comparative politics, sociology, and psychology dealing with theme, broadly defined. Bringing scholars together from a variety of fields, while focusing on the importance of revitalization and economic development, promotes cross-fertilization and serendipitous connections between scholarly fields often working in isolation.
