The Southeast Asia Update offers scholars and those interested in the region a platform to meet colleagues and to discuss current issues and new trends. The Update offers especially a platform for young researchers in the Netherlands and neighboring countries to present their work to larger audience.

Programme available online!

We invite young scholars to present their research. To allow for a diverse and interesting program, the maximum time allocated to each presentation is 15 minutes (including 5 mins of discussion). Presentations should be state of the art, short and informative, while the use of visual imagery is strongly endorsed. Our explicit aim is to include young researchers and PhD candidates in the program. Students with an interest in Southeast Asia are also encouraged to attend.

This year we will also organize three round tables on three themes that in their urgency have a serious impact on the region:

  • ASEAN Regionalism and Integration
  • Climate Change and Environmental Prospects for Future SEA
  • Pluralism, Violence and Religious Renewal

If you want to give a presentation, please contact Bart Barendregt at: ln.vinunediel.wsf@tgerdneraB
If you want to attend the Update, please contact Yayah Siegers for registration: ln.vltik@vltik
Anyone interested to present a poster on his/her research project, or aiming to introduce a newly published book should contact Bart Barendregt at: ln.vinunediel.wsf@tgerdneraB.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to get a quick update on new research on Southeast Asia and to meet new colleagues and old friends!
