Event Details:


In keeping with Stanford University's March 3 message to the campus community on COVID-19 and current recommendations of the CDC, the Asia-Pacific Research Center is electing to postpone this event until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we do our best to keep our community healthy and well. 

The coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak has sickened thousands and its control measures constrain millions of lives. What do we know, and need to know, about the epidemic’s social and economic impacts in East Asia, the broader Asia-Pacific region, and the world? APARC social scientists offer multidisciplinary perspectives on this question.

Advisory on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
In accordance with university guidelines, if you (or a spouse/housemate) have returned from travel to mainland China or South Korea in the last 14 days, we ask that you DO NOT come to campus until 14 days have passed since your return date and you remain symptom-free. For more information and updates, please refer to the Stanford Environmental Health & Safety website:

This event is part of the Contemporary Asia Seminar Series, sponsored by the Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center.
