You are cordially invited to attend an online event 'Life in a Post-COVID World: Learning from Southeast Asia' hosted by LSE Festival: Shaping the Post-COVID World with LSE Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre.

Date: 1st March 2021 (Monday)
Time: 13:00-14:00 GMT

Although the distinctive outcomes of COVID-19 in Southeast Asia are only now becoming clear, we expect that they can become the basis for innovative and impactful ideas that will matter for neighbouring regions and the world.  

Leading thinkers on Southeast Asia reflect on the lessons of COVID-19 for connectivity, governance, and urbanisation in the region and assess the futures it might foretell for Southeast Asia and the world. 

This event will be chaired by Dr Catherine Allerton (Associate Professor at LSE Department of Anthropology) and speakers for the event include:

  • Prof. Hyun Bang Shin, Professor of Geography and Urban Studies, Department of Geography and Environment, and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre at LSE. 
  • Dr Nicole Curato, Associate Professor, Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance, University of Canberra. 
  • Dr Sin Yee Koh, Senior Lecturer in Global Studies, School of Arts and Social Sciences, Monash University Malaysia. 
  • Prof. John Sidel, Sir Patrick Gillam Professor of International and Comparative Politics, Department of Government and Department of International Relations at LSE.
