Welcome to ASPA’s Section on South Asian Public Administration (SASPA)

Are you a student, faculty member, practitioner or an independent researcher interested in study and practice of South Asian Public Administration? Please reach out to the section’s executive board to become a member and to network with other scholars of South Asian Public Administration.

The unique purpose of the South Asian Section for Public Administration will be to take the activities and networks of ASPA National to the South Asian region, while simultaneously allowing for South Asian scholars and practitioners to get involved in ASPA activities in the United States.


The idea is to ultimately build a free-flowing professional network of scholars and practitioners in South Asia and scholars and practitioners in the United States interested in South Asian public administration.

South Asia is a term used to represent the southern region of the Asian continent, comprising of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The population of South Asia is about 1.891 billion or about one fourth of the world's population, making it both the most populous and the most densely populated geographical region in the world.


Overall, it accounts for about 40% of Asia's population, over 24% of the world's population, and is home to a diverse society. In the recent past, the field of Public Administration in the United States has seen a rising number of students and scholars studying administrative and policy issues of South Asia. Hence, validating a need for a formal platform to bring together scholars of South Asian Public Administration in the United States.
