The Launching of The Asean Circle and The Inaugural Asean Circle Dialogue

Overview

Asean, as a prime mover of the region, is striving to stay relevant but is trapped by its own relevance. As reported by various region-wide surveys, the awareness about Asean is limited to government officials, think-tanks, non-governmental organisations and multinational corporations. Asean needs to promote its ‘products’ better to its citizens. How do we mainstream the Asean brand, particularly among Malaysians? What can be done by other stakeholders to complement the government’s efforts in promoting the spirit of Asean-ness?

ISIS International Affairs Forum on "Structural Transformation and Income Inequality in Southeast Asia: What Does Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand’s Development Tell Us?"

By

Dr Andy Sumner
Reader in International Development
King’s College London

Overview

Few developing countries have experienced a truly sustained episode of convergence towards the characteristics of the advanced nations since the Second World War. The region of the world that has gone the furthest in that convergence is East Asia. This presentation focuses on transformation in Southeast Asia. Historically it has been thought that structural change tends to push up inequality, whilst inclusive growth necessitates static or even falling inequality. The puzzle is thus: How did Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand achieve transformation with a form of economic growth that was driven by structural change and which was ‘inclusive’ in a distributional sense? Understanding how the transformation was possible in a relatively small space of time, the extent to which it was inclusive and the caveats and prospects ahead for Southeast Asia is an area of enquiry of significance to all developing countries.

ISIS International Affairs Forum on "The Strategic Dimensions of the Global Seaborne Navigation and International Trade of the South China Sea"

By

Dr Rawindaran Nair
Director, Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, United Kingdom
and Visiting Fellow, ISIS Malaysia

Overview

Recent developments arising from the Award of the Arbitral Tribunal, constituted under a panel of the Permanent Court of Arbitration on the dispute in the South China Sea, have raised concerns on the dimensions of global seaborne trade and navigation in a strategic sea lane of the world. The dispute in the South China Sea region, linking another major artery, the Strait of Malacca, could potentially influence seaborne trades and navigation of ships that transit these routes. This presentation explores the dimensions of concern, through the model of risks and uncertainty, on the emergence of network dynamics on the evolution of seaborne trade and shipping, with particular impact on the economies of South East Asia.
