Dynamic Alignments and Dealignments in Global Southeast Asia

The research focus examines how global flows and challenges impact on the actors, patterns and processes that drive social and institutional alignments and dealignments in a strategically important, economically vibrant and politically volatile region. It explores at different organizational levels – international, national, local – and from an interdisciplinary perspective how cultures of cooperation are negotiated and in which way the changing encounters and narrative alignments between nations as well as diverse ethnic, economic, religious, political and professional groups are framed. The focus, involving Sociocultural Anthropology, Political Science, Economics and East Asian History complements an established, successfully evaluated, internationally highly visible research cluster at the university, which constitutes an important component of the Center for transcultural Asian Studies.
