EWI Announces the Establishment of its Asia-Pacific Fellows Network

The EastWest Institute is proud to announce the establishment of its Asia-Pacific Fellows Network, which covers the regions of Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and Oceania. The first set of Fellows represent expertise and nationalities that span 15 countries, including Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Maldives, Micronesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Their diverse backgrounds extend through fields that range from finance to military, from cybersecurity to nuclear arms control, and from sustainable development to conflict resolution. This ever-expanding network of both established and emerging experts is intended to provide voices from within the broader Asia-Pacific region a wider platform for engaging the international community through their publications and interactions with EWI.
