About this Unit
The unit provides an overview of the main political features and issues of the Southeast Asian region. This region is adjacent to Australia and thus events there have great strategic and economic significance for us. The countries of Southeast Asia: Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and the Philippines, are organised into the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The unit focuses on the political relationships between these countries, both bilateral and regional, within the ASEAN and other nearby states, including Japan, China and Australia. Some of the issues covered include sensitive border disputes, piracy, illegal immigration, Insurgencies, Islamist terror networks, as well as issues related to aid, development and economic cooperation and competition.
