Southeast Asia in the Year of the Horse: Issues and Prospects for 2014-15

Ernest Z. Bower, Senior Adviser and Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asian Studies at Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, DC

RSVP required by 5PM January 13

The Year of the Horse will run (so to speak) from 31 January 2014 to 18 February 2015. Many domestic, regional, and global issues will occupy the attention of Southeast Asian leaders and societies and their counterparts in the US, China, and Japan among other countries. In conversation with SEAF director Don Emmerson, Ernie Bower will highlight the most important of these policy issues and their implications. Possible topics may include the repercussions of Chinese muscle-flexing over the East and South China Sea, political strife in Thailand, quinquennial elections in Indonesia, and Myanmar's leadership of ASEAN including the plan to declare an ASEAN Community in 2015.
