Political updates from across Southeast Asia



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

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 from across the disciplines and beyond.


In 2020 the forum focuses on:

  • Cambodia
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • Myanmar
  • the Philippines
  • Vietnam


Our exciting line-up of speakers confirmed are:

  • Dr Susan Banki, University of Sydney
  • Dr Sebastian Dettman, Singapore Management University
  • Professor Michele Ford, University of Sydney
  • Dr Jean Franco, University of the Philippines, Diliman
  • Dr Huong Le Thu, Australian Strategic Policy Institute
  • Dr Thomas Power, University of Sydney
  • Dr Risa Toha, Yale-NUS, Singapore
  • Dr Kristy Ward, University of Sydney


Each of our country-specialists will record a 15-minute video presentation which will be made available in the week of 4-8 May 2020. 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.

Following each presentation, audience members will be invited to send in their questions to SSEAC by 4pm, Friday 8 May 2020. The speakers will then record short videos responding to the main questions raised by the audience, which will be made available in the week of 11-15 May 2020.

All videos recorded as part of Politics in Action 2020 will be made available for public viewing on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel from the 4th of May 2020 onwards.

Please see our website for further information and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
