Scope and focus

The journal focuses on the social political economy of contemporary Asia. CJAS publishes refereed papers that emphasize:

Business in society: Fast-paced economic development has transformed Asia. New social, cultural and political values and behaviour have emerged.
Society in business: Culture and politics are embedded in the economic arena. Business strategies, economic plans and management styles are constantly evolving out of local constraints.
Theory: Analysing new Asia and using indigenous knowledge will offer fresh ways of understanding society and business. Developing fresh theories from global and local perspectives will enrich our scientific knowledge of Asia and the world.

The scope of the journal is broad. We welcome investigations at various levels - global, societal, social group and company.
