VISION OF ASIA PACIFIC IN THE 21st CENTURY
This multinational research project brought together a team of promising, young scholars to examine the significant mid-term and long-term challenges facing the Asia Pacific region. The project began with a general assessment of the broad social, political, economic, and cultural changes affecting the region, and moved on to an examination of specific issues most important to building a peaceful, prosperous, and just region for the 21st century: security, the information technology revolution, trade and investment regimes, sustainable development, demographic change, and governance.
In the spring of 2001, members of the research team met at the Cebu Forum of the Asia Pacific Agenda Project (APAP) to discuss their findings, and a second workshop was held in November 2001 in Tokyo. The findings were subsequently presented at the 5th Global ThinkNet Tokyo Conference and later published in English.
