This Keynote seeks to address some of the questions about the ethics, concepts and practices that inform the ways in which humanitarianism is understood in the Asia-Pacific region. The short essays interrogate the universal concept of humanitarianism and examine approaches to humanitarianism found in China, Japan and Indonesia. In so doing, they explore commonalities and variation in concepts and practices of humanitarianism.
