Event Details

The 2014 Vietnam Update will be opened by the Chancellor of ANU the Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC

Abstract:  

 Connections are the source of life in Vietnam. The ties that bind Vietnamese people to their community, nation and wider world are central to wealth, identity, security and wellbeing. The 2014 Vietnam Update explores the significance of connection–and disconnection– in contemporary Vietnamese life. Sixteen scholars will present papers that examine how connections matter in politics, development, the economy and social affairs, and shape regional, ethnic, religious, gendered and sub-cultural identities. Presenters will investigate forms of disconnection associated with disadvantage and vulnerability alongside those deemed beneficial, and will shed light on connections that are transgressive or controversial. The two-day Update will commence with presentations on important recent developments in Vietnam’s political and economic affairs.

This Vietnam Update is the twentieth to be held at the Australian National University. ANU Chancellor Professor Gareth Evans will help to mark this important milestone in the Vietnam Update series by delivering the opening address.

The Vietnam Update will take place on 1-2 December in the Sir Roland Wilson Building on the ANU campus. For more information on the conference program and logistics please see the relevant links, contacts and attachments here:  2014 Vietnam Update.
