    All the best for the new team!
    Who is representing India this time?
    With best wishes
    Anup Kumar Das
    New Delhi, India

    • Hi Anup, According to section 2 of the APSTSN Strategic Plan (which is akin to a Constitution for an association), I’m afraid India is not formally represented as it lies in South Asia not in the Asia Pacific region according to UN conventions. However, we do earnestly welcome Indian STS scholars to join the APSTSN and participate in its functions and events, and be a recipient of news and APSTSN regional updates. We also welcome news of Indian STS events.

      best Richard (APSTSN Convenor)
