EUSAAP Conference 2023

EUSA Asia Pacific CONFERENCE 2023.Bangkok, Thailand

Thursday 29 & Friday 30 June 2023

Twenty-five Years of EU Studies in the Indo-Pacific: challenges, changes, prospects.

The 2023 EUSAAP annual conference and postgraduate workshop hosted by Chulalongkorn University and EUSA Thailand will celebrate and revisit the state of EU Studies within our region. This past quarter century has seen a number of frameworks introduced spanning from the ASEM format initiated in 1996 to the 2021 EU Indo-Pacific Strategy, and interspersed with the designation of four Indo-Pacific countries as EU Strategic Partners (Japan, Korea, China, India). This conference invites papers that explore these innovations and changing priorities embracing interdisciplinary perspectives – International Relations, Political Science, Law, Economics and History.


Programme, Presentations and Panels

The academic conference will be held over two days (Thursday and Friday) and participants are expected to attend both days. The postgraduate workshop will be held on one day parallel to the academic conference. The workshop will be conference-style presentations and facilitated by experienced academics which will provide supportive and constructive feedback.

The organisers reserve the right to re-arrange panels and presentation at short notice to accommodate operational requirements. Presentations are expected to be 15 minutes in length, allowing approx. 5 minutes Q&A per paper. The session chair will facilitate the discussion.

It will not be possible for the organisers to pay for any other nights.

For papers that are co-authored and/or several authors attending the conference, only one set of costs will be covered. For example, if the paper presentation is shared between two authors, we will only be able to cover the costs of one person.

Postgraduate workshop participants will be allocated twin rooms (same-sex only). Any additional guests staying at the hotel must be registered and pay the costs at check-in. If any additional nights have been booked at your cost (and confirmed in writing by the conference organisers), these must be paid for at check-in.

Registration Fees

Registration Fees

The conference and postgraduate workshop events are planned as mainly in-person events. We are monitoring the ongoing pandemic, however, at this stage, it is not planned to offer a virtual component.

EUSAAP is working hard to keep registration fees affordable. Fees include catering during the conference and a conference dinner. Please choose your registration type carefully (academic or student) during the registration process.

Please understand that all registration fees are non-refundable. Registration fees are payable at registration and charged via PayPal. Unfortunately EUSAAP cannot accept bank transfers, cheques or cash as currency conversion and/or banking fees often outweigh the registration fees.
