The East Asia Forum (EAF) is a policy forum directed by Emeritus Professor Peter Drysdale of the Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University (ANU). The EAF was launched in 2006 by Australia’s former Treasurer, the Hon. Peter Costello[1]

The Forum provides a platform for dialogue on Asian economic and public policy, publishing two articles a day at www.eastasiaforum.org, and releasing a highly regarded quarterly magazine, the East Asia Forum Quarterly (EAFQ).

EAF offers daily analysis of economics, politics and public policy in East Asia and the Pacific. Articles focus on a wide range of public policy issues including trade, economic policy, governance, international relations and political developments. Content includes Australian, East Asian and Asia Pacific regional perspectives, with expert contributors from around the region. It is edited by Shiro Armstrong and Peter Drysdale.[2]

The East Asia Forum is operated by the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research (EABER).
