Call for Book Proposals: World Scientific Series on the Asia Pacific in Global Development

18 November 2022

Aims and Scope

The World Scientific Series on the Asia Pacific in Global Development integrates various spectrums of social science by addressing globalisation and development in the Asia Pacific region. The series covers a wide range of themes, including but not limited to, climate change and environment, peace and security, diplomacy and international relations, politics and social change, migration and refugees, human rights, gender and equality, public policy and effective institutions, accountable institution and corruption, business and trade, digital revolution and communication, gaming industry and technology, unification and division, international governance and accountability, civil society and social movements, anthropological studies and sociology, international development cooperation, economic development, political economy and development. As the interest in the development of the Asia-Pacific region is increasing, the series serves as a timely venue for transdisciplinary dialogues and debates for scholars in both development studies and area studies, but not exclusively in other disciplines in social science. The series includes monographs as well as edited volumes, which are of interest to academics, graduate and/or undergraduate students and policy makers.
