ACAS Fellows

ACAS welcomes researchers, writers and other professionals who may need its academic resources and network for their projects on Asian society and culture.

Scholars from around the world working on a wide range of topics such as religion and politics/secularism in Philippines, Filipino diaspora in Japan and cyberspace, and international labor migration, have been hosted by ACAS in recent years. As affiliates, they are provided a work space at ACAS and access to university facilities. The lectures that usually cap their research stay at ACAS invariably draws great interest from the Ateneo community.
