The world’s politico-socio-economic center of gravity is re-balancing towards the east. It is imperative to have a generation of leaders from both inside and outside of Asia who will understand the issues generated by the shift.

The AsiaGlobal Fellows Program aims to nurture promising mid-career professionals to become future leaders and influencers with a deep understanding of global policy issues from Asian perspectives, and to develop and cultivate their long-term ties from around the world with Asia, and vice versa.
