The Berkeley APEC Study Center

The Berkeley APEC Study Center at the University of California, Berkeley, conducts multidisciplinary research on political, economic, and business trends in the Asia-Pacific, especially related to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.

Our Mission

Our primary mission is to produce and disseminate knowledge to decision-makers in the public and private spheres to facilitate the creation of mutually beneficial cooperation in the business, academic, and policy-making communities. To this end, the center brings together scholars from various departments, institutes, and centers from around the world to foster collaborative research on APEC-related issues. BASC works in partnership with Berkeley’s Institute of East Asian Studies.
