The Alfred Deakin Institute and Buddhist Studies@Deakin are delighted to host the 2018 Australasian Association of Buddhist Studies (AABS) Conference. The Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation (ADI) is an internationally recognised and highly regarded social sciences and humanities research institute. Our researchers aim to understand the complex meanings of citizenship, social inclusion and globalisation, and investigate the implications of these forces in our lives and communities.
The AABS was inaugurated in October 2005. The association aims to establish links between scholars and students of Buddhism working in Australasia, between different disciplines working in the field of Buddhist Studies, and between local and overseas scholars. To these ends, the AABS organises seminars, conferences, public lectures, and discussion and study groups.
