Other Event in Australia

The Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney will organize a face-to-face event titled ‘Politics in Action 2022: Updates from Southeast Asia’. The event will also be livestreamed to Facebook so you can watch from the comfort of your own home.

When: Friday 6 May 2022, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (GMT+11/Australian Eastern Time)
Where: Lecture Theatre 1050, Abercrombie Business School, The University of Sydney, Camperdown Campus

Drawing upon expertise from around the world, these presentations will provide up-to-date information on developments in Southeast Asia relevant to scholars, students, practitioners and the general public.

In this one-day public forum, invited experts will provide an analysis of the current political situation in Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and Vietnam, and discuss the broader implications of events in these countries for our region.

In 2022, our exciting lineup of speakers includes:

  • Indonesia – Dr Ken Setiawan (The University of Melbourne)
  • Lao PDR – Dr Andrea Haefner (Griffith University)
  • Malaysia – Dr Azmil Tayeb (Universiti Sains Malaysia)
  • The Philippines – Assistant Professor Maria Elize H. Mendoza (University of the Philippines Diliman)
  • Timor-Leste – Professor Michael Leach (Swinburne University)
  • Vietnam – Khac Giang Nguyen (Victoria University)

Each of our country-specialists will present for 15 to 20 minutes, followed by a short Q&A session. They are instructed to pitch their talk to an interested, but not necessarily academic, audience so the talks are able to be enjoyed by a wide range of people. These talks should be particularly valuable to non-political scientists working in one or more Southeast Asian countries.

All videos recorded as part of Politics in Action 2022 will be made available for public viewing on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel after the event has concluded.
