ASOC Student E-Conference is an online conference for undergraduate and graduate students. The purpose of the conference is for students in Asia to present their research topics and engage in communication and collaboration with Asian colleagues. The Conference also welcomes related papers coming from American and European students in comparative perspectives with Asia. Thus the conference will bring together researchers and students affiliated with Asian universities and those who aspire to pursue Asian studies to discuss issues and harmonization in Asia. 

【What is ASOC?】
ASOC (Asian Studies Online Consortium) is a research and education group organized by East Asian researchers, and exploring new research and education methods using online networks under the COVID-19.

【Key Theme: Challenge and Harmony in Asia】
Globalization and regionalism have brought major changes to Asian politics, economy, and society.; COVID-19 is also promoting such trends. In the midst of this rapid change, confrontations are occurring among the U.S., China, ASEAN, Japan, and other countries, while at the same time, harmony is being achieved through international cooperation and regionalism. The two sides of challenge and harmony are intersecting in various fields such as security, economy, development, public health, democracy, civil society, migration, human rights, and social integration. In this conference, we hope that young researchers who will be responsible for Asia in the future will look at Asia in the 21st century, analyze its challenges and its harmonies, and explore ways of dialogue.
