The Asian Studies Network was created to enhance knowledge and understanding of the Asia region within the University of Ottawa community. It aims to support and promote research and thinking on Asia in the security, economic, political, social and cultural spheres. The ASN brings together students, scholars, policy-makers and diplomats with expertise on Asia to give presentations and lead discussions on issues of importance to Asia and Canada.
