Abstract

This article will chronicle the history of the Asia-Pacific branch of the International Consortium on Social Development (ICSDAP). It will describe strategic decisions and actions, taken in response to several opportunities and challenges faced by ICSDAP, that led to its successful growth. Drawing on secondary data (e-mails, minutes, and conference proceedings) and the author’s relevant observations and experiences, it will document the details of organizing six conferences along with associated activities over a period of twelve years. Further, it will include a reflective note describing the issues and possibilities of sustaining the branch and shedding some light on future directions and potential developments. This documented history of the Asia-Pacific branch of ICSD and the author’s reflections and analysis have implications for developing and sustaining ICSD and its branches and similar organizations that have worldwide or regional reach.
