Message from the President, Professor Dhananjay Singh
I am extremely honoured to have been elected as the President of AASSREC for 2023-2025 by AASSREC members at the General Conference in Seoul. This is a huge privilege, and also a very big responsibility, which I can only hope to fulfil.
As you certainly can imagine, with most new challenges, one is only partially aware of what to expect, of the challenges to be faced. I have tremendous respect for the task before me, and I will give my best to serve the association, to help achieve its goals, and to execute the roles and responsibilities of AASSREC for the benefit and common interest in social science research and teaching in the Asia-Pacific region.
I am extremely grateful for the trust in me expressed in this vote – as well as for the encouragement and support that I have received in the Executive Council, as well as since being elected. I am also extremely confident that the new Council will work together harmoniously and effectively.
During the tenure as President, I’d like to stress the importance of being open and inclusive. This for me means performing such other duties as may be assigned by the General Conference or Executive Council. And it also means working towards unity while representing the AASSREC in all its relationships with other similar bodies.
I look forward to welcoming you to the 26th AASSREC Biennial General Conference in India in 2025.
Thank you all!
Professor Dhananjay Singh
