ISIS International Affairs Forum on "The United States and Southeast Asia Under the Trump Administration"


Dr Satu Limaye
East West Center in Washington, USA

Date: 29 September 2017
Venue : ISIS Malaysia


President Trump is expected to make his first visit to Asia in November 2017 for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting, East Asia Summit (EAS) and bilateral meetings with leaders of regional countries. This presentation offers one American perspective prior to the visit on the continuities and divergences between the Obama and Trump Administrations regarding Southeast Asia, developments in U.S.-Southeast Asia relations during the first nine months of the Trump Administration and the prospects for U.S. bilateral and multilateral ties with Southeast Asia. It argues that there are clear differences (and uncertainties) regarding the Trump Administration versus the Obama Administration’s approaches to Southeast Asia. However, the weight and diversity of American interests in Southeast Asia remains a constant, and the Trump Administration has pursued active ties with regional countries. Key unknowns that remain include the relative balance between key drivers of U.S.-Southeast Asia ties as well as between diplomacy/defense and trade/investment elements of ties.

ISIS International Affairs Forum on “Presentation on Sulu and Mindanao”


The on-going Marawi Siege highlights the continuing threat of violence in the southern Philippines. Beyond its immediate humanitarian cost, it has already emboldened and united extremist networks across Southeast Asia. The Marawi siege is a result of both the pervasive conflict affecting Mindanao and the emergence of new transnational extremist networks. The Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue has been working to resolve conflict in the Philippines since 2005.This event aims to bring to Malaysia the voices of researchers and practitioners working at the frontlines of the conflict in the southern Philippines.

Book Launch “ASEAN FutureForward Anticipating the Next 50 Years” and Panel Discussion

Book Launch “ASEAN FutureForward Anticipating the Next 50 Years” and Panel Discussion on VISUALISING ASEAN'S NEXT 50 YEARS

ISIS Malaysia launched its latest book publication entitled “ASEAN FutureForward Anticipating the Next 50 Years”. This book is a compilation of essays by various authors from both within and beyond Southeast Asia, on ASEAN’s future in a rapidly changing landscape over the next five decades. The book is concerned with issues that could dramatically change the political, economic and social landscape both regionally and globally. As an initiative by ISIS Malaysia, this book received the full support of the ASEAN Secretariat and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia.

Tan Sri Rastam Mohd Isa gave the welcoming remarks. HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah Al-Maghfur-Lah, the Sultan of Perak Darul Ridzuan and Royal Fellow of ISIS Malaysia delivered the Royal Address and launched the book.

Following that, there was a panel discussion entitled Visualising ASEAN’s Next 50 Years. The panel consisted of Dato’ Steven Wong as moderator as well as Dato’ Sri Nazir Razak, Prof Koh Kheng Lian, Dr Aries Arugay and Ms Dwintha Maya Kartika as speakers. As a reflection of the book, the panel discussion allowed each speaker to elaborate on his/her piece in the book as well as to engage the wider audience in discussing issues that will develop and emerge in the next 50 years.

Mr Boris Michel
Regional Director for Asia and the Pacific
International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)


Global insecurity and increasing political volatility across regions have affected humanitarian aid and action over the past few years.For the ICRC, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring the continuity of services in complex security situations where the need for assistance reaches unprecedented levels globally.
Given the changing regional security climate in Southeast Asia, such as the Marawi situation, what are the challenges that lie ahead for humanitarian action and aid? How would institutions such as the ICRC cope with the challenges? Will humanitarian organisations be able to adapt in fulfilling their aims?
