7th Southeast Asia Update

19/06/2015 @ 09:00 - 16:30

The 7th Southeast Asia Update is organized by the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV), and supported by the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS) and provides researchers, scholars, students and others interested in the region with a unique opportunity to:
  • get a quick update on the latest research (initiatives) in the region;
  • get an overview of ongoing debates and research on Southeast Asia;
  • connect and debate with researchers presenting their work and ideas;
  • meet colleagues and old friends;
  • extend your network of Southeast Asia scholars in The Netherlands and abroad

Throughout the Netherlands and in neighbouring countries, a large number of scholars are involved in research projects dealing with Southeast Asia. Whereas those working on comparable subjects or in the same countries know each other well, the general academic exchange on Southeast Asia in the Netherlands and elsewhere remains rather limited. Therefore, the Southeast Asia Update brings researchers working on the region together every year.

We have put together a programme that comprises presentations of new and ongoing research. Our explicit aim is to include young researchers and PhD candidates in the programme. Students with an interest in Southeast Asia are also encouraged to attend.

The programme will provide ample time for discussion and networking. To allow for as diverse and interesting a programme as possible, the maximum time allocated to each presentation is 15 minutes (including 5 mins discussion).

How to attend
Seats are very limited! Please send an email to Yayah Siegers if you wish to attend: [email protected]

We hope to meet you in The Hague!
