Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies

The Austrian Journal of South-East Asian Studies (ASEAS) is an international, interdisciplinary and open access social sciences journal covering a variety of topics (culture, economics, geography, politics, society) from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Topics should be related to Southeast Asia, but are not restricted to the geographical region, when spatial and political borders of Southeast Asia are crossed or transcended, e.g., in the case of linguistics, diaspora groups or forms of socio-cultural transfer. ASEAS publishes two focus issues per year and we welcome out-of-focus submissions at any time. The journal invites both established as well as young scholars to present research results and theoretical and methodical discussions, to report about on-going research projects or field studies, to publish conference reports, to conduct interviews with experts in the field, and to review relevant books. Articles can be submitted in German or English.

ASEAS 12(1) features a thematically open issue on recent developments in Southeast Asia, ranging from qualitative case studies to wider socio-economic, political, and cultural dynamics in the region. The articles cover developments in Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia, but the analyses transcend national borders and also discuss, for example, the rising influence of China in Southeast Asia.
