The aims of NVAPS - Netherlands Association for Asian and Pacific Studies are to encourage the studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences of Asia and the Pacific and to promote the interests of those engaged in such studies in the Netherlands. It was established in 1996.

In addition to aiming at the encouragement of studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences of Asia and the Pacific, the association actively promotes the interests of those engaged in such studies in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The association intends to accomplish these aims by:
  • Professionalizing the cooperation between scholars working in these fields
  • Highlighting the role of Asian and Pacific Studies, and creating a broad societal basis
  • Providing scientific policy advice
  • Providing a forum for non-institutional scholars
The NVAPS serves both as a platform and an umbrella organization for social and human scientists who are interested in the Pacific and Asian regions, spanning from the Middle East to the Pacific.
