This event, sponsored by the Worldwide Universities Network, will bring together key experts on Asia-Pacific affairs from around the world to particularly explore the relationship between different forms of regionalism (economic, business, politico-security, socio-cultural) within the Asia-Pacific and issues of global governance. Specific related issues include:

Nations and peoples that seek to solve common international or transnational challenges at the regional level have an impact at the global level, for example concerning environment, poverty alleviation and energy security Regional level co-operation in the Asia-Pacific that may be directly or explicitly part of world-wide endeavours to improve global governance Regional representation and global governance generally, e.g. G8/G20 Inter-connections between regional and global integration processes, such as international production networks How regional society-building may contribute to global society formation How the formation of competing regional blocs and regional powers may have adverse effects on the governance of the global system
