The APMRN was established in 1995 as a research project of the Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme of UNESCO, with its secretariat located at the University of Wollongong, Australia. The APMRN is a collaborative organisation of researchers and scholars interested in all aspects of migration, who are organised through autonomous regional networks including Australia, Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The central focus of the project is the long-term role of migration and ethno-cultural diversity as factors in transforming the societies of the Asia-Pacific Region.
