About the Survey and Webinar

Southeast Asia continues to face unprecedented challenges and political divisions in the context of the evolving dynamics between major powers and spillover effects from conflicts, and the rapidly changing global geopolitical and economic environment. What are their implications? What can or should the region’s response to these new dynamics be?

Against this backdrop, the ASEAN Studies Centre at the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute conducted the sixth edition of ‘‘The State of Southeast Asia 2024” Survey in January – February 2024 to seek the views of Southeast Asian opinion leaders on regional affairs. The survey canvassed the views of 1,994 respondents from the policy, research, business, civil society, and media communities. Among the questions explored in this edition are the Israel-Hamas conflict; the Russia-Ukraine War; Taiwan Strait tensions; ASEAN Digital Economy Framework Agreement (DEFA); ASEAN leadership; China’s Vision of a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind; the US-China rivalry and its impact on Southeast Asia, levels of trust regarding the major powers; and soft power. The E-launch event will present key survey findings, which will be highlighted for discussion and analysis, by a distinguished panel of discussants.
