CAPI Roundtable

Southeast Asia in Global Context

Situated between India and China, along the busiest maritime sea routes in the world, Southeast Asia remains today at the crossroads of ideas, commerce, migration, language, religion, and law, as it has for centuries. With a total population greater than that of the European Union, the countries of Southeast Asia have been working through the ASEAN—the Association of Southeast Asian Nations—to integrate their economies and cooperate politically and economically on matters of common concern, increasing the region’s influence on global affairs. This roundtable series situates contemporary Southeast Asia in Asia and the wider world, examining the many ways the pressing issues in the region affect us all. The inaugural Roundtable in November 2016 considered Thailand's Political and Constitutional Future, following the death in October of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) after his remarkable 70-year reign.
