The upcoming issue 7(1) of the Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies (ASEAS) will feature a focus on “Conflict Dynamics and Transformations in South-East Asia” and aims at bringing together researchers from various academic fields in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of this complex topic. In a broader perspective, the term “conflict” refers to the expression of opposing interests that shape complex societal negotiation processes. Although the mode of procedural conflict resolution through legitimate institutions is usually deemed most desirable, the post-colonial states of South-East Asia are still the arena of a significant number of intra-state conflicts that have been carried out violently, some for decades. On the other hand, during the last decade, South-East Asian governments have increasingly started to move from military conflict resolution approaches towards politically negotiated resolutions. To understand these dynamics and assess their implications for future developments in the region, ASEAS welcomes submissions on methodological and theoretical approaches to conflict studies as well as empirical research that illustrate recent trajectories of conflict dynamics and transformations in South-East Asia.
If you intend to submit a paper, please contact the editorial board (firstname.lastname@example.org), as this facilitates our planning process. Submissions dealing with one or several of the following issues are of special interest to the board of editors:
