2019 ISTR Asia Pacific Conference theme:

Shifting Sands? The Challenges of Regulatory Change and Its Impact on the Third Sector Environment in the Asia Pacific Region

The 2019 Asia Pacific ISTR conference is an opportunity  to showcase exciting new practice  developments  and  research  that  seek  to  establish  sustainable roles  for  third  sector organizations and help them to cope with challenges in the many diverse countries that 
make  up  the  region.
