I’ll be making my first visit to Hong Kong later this week to attend the International Studies Association’s regional Asia-Pacific conference. I’ll be giving a new paper on human security as part of a series of panels on ‘Critical security in the Asia-Pacific’ (SuA03: Sunday 8:30 AM – 10:15 AM). In addition, I am also co-organizing and contributing to a roundtable on ‘The ethics of scholarship in a changing region: studying and teaching the Asia-Pacific’ (MA08: Monday 8:30 AM – 10:15 AM). Except for having to do early morning panels both mornings, I am looking forward to discussing some of the key issues I have been thinking and teaching about recently.
