ABSTRACT
With the immediate dust of the United States’ elections having settled, Dr. Charles E. Morrison offers a post-facto analysis of the different political cultures in the country that shaped the campaigns and ultimately determined the results.

Overview
Southeast Asia has considerable renewable energy which could lead the region to a future that is based on wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric dams and biomass. The uneven distribution of these resources within the region, and even within Malaysia, would require some degree of integration. How and to what extent can the exploitation of these dispersed resources enhance Malaysia’s energy security, and what infrastructures, institutions and policy instruments are required for this to occur? This presentation will draw policy lessons from a host of Asian countries in transitioning to a renewable energy future.

Overview

For decades, the Muslim Moro peoples have locked horns with the Philippines government for greater autonomy over the governance of Mindanao. Over the last forty years, this struggle has deteriorated into a bloody and costly armed conflict. The recently concluded framework peace agreement between the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) presents the best chance for peace to take root in southern Philippines. The creation of the Bangsamoro homeland is a step in the right direction but peace and stability is still fragile and much work remains to be done. This forum discusses the Malaysian-facilitated framework peace settlement between the MILF and the Philippine government, with focus on how the framework will be implemented and the possible challenges ahead.

Synopsis: "We only have to think how much the world - and the importance of China - have changed in the last decade to realise that in two decades from now the world will look very different. China's influence will be hugely greater. The world order will be in the process of profound change. And East Asia will be transformed."
