About Asia Public Affairs and Social Services Society
York Asia Public Affairs & Social Services Society aims to raise awareness on Asia's current affairs and social issues. Recent affairs as 2014 Coup d’état in Thailand, 2014 Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong and 2016 General Election in Taiwan showing people’s demand for democracy. After the proposal of ‘One Belt One Road’ by the Chinese government, creating a tremendous and unseen change in Asia, we expect there will be more cooperation oppourtunities between countries in Asia. As one of the largest ethnic groups at the University of York, there is a pressing need for a voice speaking for the Asians within the university to spread awareness of public issues in Asia, and to encourage students to give back to the community.
