Center for Asia-Pacific Area Studies


The Center for Asia-Pacific Area Studies (CAPAS) was established in January 2003 to further integrate the research resources for facilitating multi-disciplinary studies on the Asia-Pacific area at Academia Sinica. CAPAS is the upgraded and reorganized form of the former Asia-Pacific Research Program (APARP); Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and the Pacific Islands now constitute the three main area foci. CAPAS also aims at cultivating a new generation of domestic Asia-Pacific scholarship and strengthening international academic exchange and cooperation.

  2. Languages, religions, ethnic groups and indigenous cultures in the Asia-Pacific region
  3. Post-colonial political, economic, social trans- formations and developments in the Asia-Pacific region
  4. Interaction of ethnic Chinese and local societies in the Asia-Pacific region


  1. Establish a solid foundation for Asia-Pacific studies among different institutes of social sciences and humanities in Academia Sinica
  2. Enhance collaboration and exchange between Academia Sinica and other prestigious research institutions and scholars in the Asia-Pacific, Europe and USA
  3. Promote policy research related to the Asia-Pacific region
