The 2nd Annual Southeast Asian Studies Symposium will be held on 9-10 March 2013 at the University of Oxford.

Southeast Asia is a vitally important region of the world, and its most urgent issues are transregional and multidisciplinary in nature. Project Southeast Asia seeks to contribute to solutions to these issues by providing the Symposium as a platform for the dissemination, discussion, and debate of ideas.

The Symposium has three core aims:

  • To present solutions for contemporary Southeast Asian issues by bringing together the brightest minds from all fields and disciplines, and from around the world. Its core goal is to promote the integration of the humanities and social sciences with science, medicine, and business in order to create solutions which are effective, viable, and appropriate to culture and geography.
  • To build networks and relationships among current and future decision-makers in Europe and Southeast Asia, as well as connections among academia, government, NGOs, and business. Integral to the Symposium will be opportunities for Southeast Asian and European politicians, corporate leaders, academics, and NGOs to interact and build relationships.
  • To promote the research of the most talented academics of Southeast Asia and offer a platform for young academics to present their work.

The Symposium will also offer alternative opportunities outside formal panels. These include a room for group meetings/discussions/project debates; an area for the display of posters; and the screening of movies and staging of art or cultural performances.
