Welcome to HPAIR.

As Harvard’s largest annual student connection in Asia, the Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations creates a forum of exchange and facilitates discussion of the most important economic, political, and social issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. Since 1991, the annual HPAIR conferences have brought together students from the world’s foremost universities and leaders in the fields of government, business, culture, and academia. Join us in 2016 to commemorate HPAIR’s 25th anniversary as we seek to make the Asia Conference more financially accessible, celebrate greater diversity, and empower each other to change the world.
