Secretary-General Alex B. Brillantes, Jr. and his team work together with the Asian Review of Public Administration (ARPA) Editorial Board Members to further improve the flagship publication of EROPA and reach a broader audience. Pioneer EROPA members and renowned public administration scholars and experts such as Dr. Akira Nakamura and Dr. Dwarika Nath Dhungel are among those who shared their views on how to update the journal to keep up with global trends and innovations in academic publications.
The Asian Review of Public Administration (ARPA) is the flagship journal of the Eastern Regional Organization for Public Administration. It is an internationally-refereed journal in the field of public administration and governance in Asia and the Pacific region.
The first issue of the Asian Review of Public Administration came out in June 1989, succeeding the EROPA Review (1960-1975), initially published in Vietnam, and the EROPA Journal (1983-1984), initially published in Pakistan, as the organization’s flagship publication. ARPA hopes to serve as a continuing forum through which views and positions of scholars and practitioners can be shared. It reinforces EROPA’s commitment to good administration not only among members in the region, but with other regions as well. EROPA seeks to expand the forum, to improve EROPA’s interactions, to further discover the organization’s capabilities by way of exchanging ideas and perspectives.
Scholars and academicians, practitioners, students and researchers interested in the field of public administration and governance in the general Asia-Pacific region are the target audience of the journal.
