LIRNEasia is a regional information and communication technology (ICT) policy and regulation think tank active across the Asia Pacific.

Our Mission: To improve the lives of the people of the emerging Asia-Pacific by facilitating their use of ICTs and related infrastructures; by catalyzing the reform of laws, policies and regulations to enable those uses through the conduct of policy-relevant research, training and advocacy with emphasis on building in-situ expertise.

To that end, LIRNEasia endeavors to catalyze the transformation of governance and regulation of ICTs in the emerging Asia Pacific region from obstructive, inhibiting regimes, into ones that will allow opportunities for people to use ICTs in ways that will improve their lives. Our immediate priority is building a team of Asia Pacific ICT policy and regulatory professionals that can work on equal terms with the best in the world.
