Webcasts & podcasts on the intersection of Northeast and Southeast Asian security
Writing less, talking more
Dear friends and colleagues,
The past few months have been busy for anyone tracking political and security developments in both Northeast and Southeast Asia. In response to recent events, I have been writing a bit less, and participating in panels, podcasts, and webinars more frequently, sharing my perspectives on a variety of issues but most often on the hot topic of Taiwan and how it impacts national interests throughout the region.
I wanted to take the opportunity to share some of my commentary over the past four months. If you have already watched everything on Netflix and Disney and have a few hours to learn about the intersection of Northeast and Southeast security, here are some multimedia programs you might be interested in. Pro tip: you can speed up the playback and listen at 1.5x.
This week, I joined Straits Times Associate Editor Ravi Velloor’s podcast Speaking of Asia to discuss, “Avoiding war over Taiwan.” You can tell from the screenshot that we enjoyed the discussion.
Also this week, the Centre for Asia and Globalisation at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy released their latest Counterpoint Southeast Asia Issue #4 titled, “What should Southeast Asian states do in a Taiwan conflict?” The brief and webinar which I moderated features three leading experts from Southeast Asia, Chong Ja Ian from National University of Singapore, Ratih Kabinawa from the University of Western Australia, and Ivy Kwek from the International Crisis Group.
The brief is available at (click the image):
In August, I spoke to William Choong at the ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute for the Dialogues at Fulcrum webcast:
The Fulcrum webinar builds on my article for ISEAS’ Perspective series, titled, ““Ukraine Today, Taiwan Tomorrow”: Should Southeast Asia Worry?”
I hope you find these programs enlightening. I am always open to dialogue and exchanging views on these topics, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to speak. You can also follow me on Twitter at @tanganzhu
