Conference Theme: Sociology and Social Transformations in the Asia Pacific region

The first Asia Pacific Sociological Association (APSA) Conference was held at the Philippine Social Science Center under the leadership of Prof. John Western (University of Queensland), Prof. Corazon Lamug (Philippine Sociological Society), and Dr. Virginia Miralao (Philippine Social Science Council) and a number of sociology colleagues from the Asia Pacific region in 1996.

Each conference has a specific theme which addresses the development of sociological research and scholarship in the Asia-Pacific region.
