Southeast Asian Studies Symposium 2014

“Southeast Asia in Transition”

The Southeast Asian Studies Symposium is the world’s largest annual conference on Southeast Asia. It aims to present interdisciplinary and transnational solutions to contemporary Southeast Asian issues; to provide opportunities for dialogue and networking among academic, business, political, and civil society leaders from Europe and Southeast Asia; and to provide a platform for emerging and established scholars to demonstrate their latest research on Southeast Asia.

The 2014 Symposium, held 22-23 March 2014 at Keble College, Oxford, OX1 3PG, was our biggest and best conference yet.
