This paper is the second part of an essay on India’s Project Mausam. While Part 1 focused on the nature of Project Mausam, this paper seeks to examine its impact on ASEAN and Malaysia in particular.

His interests lie in the security/strategic challenges and impacts of major power dynamics on ASEAN and its member states, the South China Sea dispute, and Malaysia’s national security and foreign policies. Thomas also looks at the policy implications of refugees, asylum seekers and other displaced persons in Malaysia, and the Malaysian government’s refugee policy of “not having a policy”. Thomas obtained his Master of Arts in International Studies from the University of Nottingham (Malaysia) where he graduated with Distinction, completing a dissertation that assessed Malaysia’s responses to China in the South China Sea dispute through the balance of threat approach. He also holds a BA in Communication and Media Management, and a BA Honours in Communication, Media & Culture from the University of South Australia. Previously, he was a public relations practitioner focusing on social media management and media engagement strategies for clients from the government and enterprise technology sectors.
