The Summer Seminar on Population, held annually since 1970, serves as a forum for individuals and institutions concerned with population- and health-related issues. Participants identify emerging research and policy concerns, learn and share new research methods and program approaches, and forge links between researchers and practitioners working in key institutions throughout Asia, the Pacific, the United States, and other regions of the world.

The East-West Center's Summer Seminar contributes to the sharing of knowledge and experience on the demographic and health situation in Asia-Pacific countries, including policy initiatives and related policy research needs and outputs. The Summer Seminar also provides opportunities for participants from the Asia-Pacific region to share knowledge and experience with participants from other parts of the world. Former participants are found throughout Asia and the Pacific, working in virtually all the major government, nongovernmental (NGO), and academic institutions of the region that deal with population and health issues.

The Summer Seminar consists of three concurrent but independent workshops, coordinated by East-West Center staff and invited co-coordinators and resource persons from outside organizations. Participants are university graduates proficient in English, with training and experience in a field relevant to the topic of their workshop. Participants are selected on the basis of their potential contribution to one of the Seminar's workshops and to future professional work.
