The Pacific Society at SOAS is committed to building stronger relations among SOAS students and our friends in the Pacific Rim. Through speaking series and cultural events, we hope to bridge the divide that exists between the university and relevant diplomatic and cultural institutions in London. In the last three years, we have done so by sponsoring speaking events with ambassadors, artists, musicians, and other thought leaders in partnership with leading think tanks and nonprofit organizations. This year, we are looking to grow our membership, especially among first and second year undergraduates. If you are interested in joining, please reach out to us. Every member of the society plays a leadership role.
