Asiatic Affairs is UCL's first and only international affairs society focused on current affairs and issues in Asia. Through hosting socials and academic talks, as well as publishing online articles and journals, our society hopes to raise awareness and increase constructive engagement with issues facing and happening in Asia. Living in an age of globalisation and modernity, the heterogeneous complexity of the region can no longer be ignored.

We hope that by actively discussing issues pertinent to the region, we are then able to expand individual global perspectives on issues concerning both the global as well as domestic, building a community of individuals passionate about asiatic affairs.

Asiatic Affairs is a proud alliance society of the Bentham Brooks Institute, a student-led think tank encompassing a bespoke research program to produce peer-reviewed, high quality research policy papers to influence policy-makers and influential figures. Formed by an alliance of 5 of the biggest international affairs societies at UCL, BBI will benefit from vast resources of these societies, a decorated board of advisors and a robust organisational framework of BBI to scrutinise and find the solutions to the problems facing us today.
