The APRN was established through a process that started in a conference in Canada in 1997, and culminated in its first research conference in Manila in 1999 on the WTO and the impact of trade liberalization on Asian countries.
APRN’s strength and prestige as a regional research network is largely due to its being rooted in the social movements while adhering to the standards set for a scholarly undertaking. From an original 21 members, APRN is now 52 member-strong, with a growing number of applicants from national and regional NGOs and NGO coalitions from the Pacific to the Middle East.
