About the Journal

"International Relations of the Asia-Pacific has already published important contributions to our understanding of the dynamics of international politics in Asia and has presented important work on the wider debates in international relations theory from Asian perspectives. . . . It offers important original contributions by leading scholars, has high editorial standards and has the potential to become one of the leading journals in the field."
Phil Deans

"An exciting new journal that significantly advances the field of international relations by exploring frontier issues in the realm of theory, but in the context of urgent real world problems. A necessary source for all who want to know about the latest developments in IR and who welcome the advancement of knowledge through rigorous scholarly debates."
Lucian W. Pye
Past President of the American Political Science Association

"In a never ending sea of new publications, International Relations of the Asia-Pacific has established itself in a very short time as one of the leading journals that addresses crucial issues in Asia-Pacific with first-rate research written by leading scholars from around the world. Because it is beholden to no one school of thought, methodology or political ideology it is an important and welcome resource for all of us."
