The Ritsumeikan Center for Asia Pacific Studies was established in July 1996 with the aim of developing Asia Pacific Studies and becoming a global hub for the field. This year, RCAPS marks its 20th anniversary. Founding RCAPS Director/Founding APU President Sakamoto will speak at a symposium to mark the occasion. Panel discussants will reflect on the last 20 years and talk about the current challenges facing the field in these changing times. They will address what Asia Pacific Studies is, why it is important, and how it has developed as an academic field. We invite you to join us for the discussion of these issues at the symposium.
