ASEAS 15(1) launches the first issue of the Journal under its new title, Advances in Southeast Asian Studies. It features a thematically open collection of contributions covering legal issues, historical discourses, and contemporary developments in the region. Drawn from various perspectives, the contributions scrutinize legal regulations, such as, on the placement and protection of Indonesian migrant workers and on agricultural land appropriation in Vietnam, provide gendered analysis on knowledge production, and examine prospects of poverty alleviation of low-income households in Indonesia and remote fishing communities in the Philippines.
