UNE Asia Pacific Centre

UNE's Asia Pacific Centre serves as a hub for research and policy analysis that sheds light on the much-heralded grand shift of historic weight from Europe and the US to the centres of economic, strategic and cultural dynamism in South and East Asia, and the Pacific.

The Centre brings together research students, experienced scholars, experts and practitioners to develop a deeper understanding of many aspects of this movement, including: strategy and security, environment and resource management, labour relations and economics, regionalism, history, religion and politics.

This deeper understanding is disseminated through publication and teaching, with the aim of promoting ties and understanding between Australia and the region and its peoples.

Historical background

The UNE Asia Centre (UNEAC) was established by the University in July 1992, later becoming the Asia Pacific Centre, in recognition of the growing importance of the region. This initiative recognised the long and extensive expertise and experience of Asia within the University of New England (UNE). The Centre is a convenient central location for access to UNE's Asia expertise.
