The Center for Asian Politics and Policy (CAPP)

Created at the turn of the century, the Center for Asian Politics and Policy (CAPP)
supports research programs and publications in the field of Asian studies. Through collective work among
scholars, the center conducted a series of studies on East Asia regional community building, which resulted
in a 511-page book published in 2008. CAPP worked with Renmin University of China from 2005 to 2010 to
support the editing of a scholarly journal. From 2012 on, the Center began to support the publication of
the Journal of Asian Politics and History (JAPH).

Now a part of the Clarewood University, the Center for Asian Politics and Policy is currently having research
projects on the studies of ASEAN-China-U.S. relations, Mekong Five Countries (Myanmar, Thailand, Laos,
Cambodia, Vietnam), the South China Sea, as well as Asia-Pacific community building.
