FY 2020/2021 saw significant changes for ISEAS while the pandemic raged around the world. The year also saw major political upheavals and natural disasters in several ASEAN member states and the region.
ISEAS’ work continued apace, with research and seminars conducted mainly on virtual platforms. We not only kept up with developments but were productive throughout the year. An all-time annual record was achieved in the number of research publications produced. We also held a record number of webinars and online conferences which, aided by the wider outreach that the virtual format allows, attracted a record number of participants from more than 83 countries.
The year also saw the birth of several new initiatives, including the Wang Gungwu Visiting Fellowship, Climate Change in Southeast Asia Programme and Fulcrum, a dedicated e-platform to showcase our snappy commentary pieces to international readers.
ISEAS also received two ASEAN awards – The ASEAN Prize 2020 (awarded to ASEAN Studies Centre) and 1st runner up (Retrofitted Building Category), ASEAN Energy Awards 2020.
