Overview:

The Japanese Studies Association in Southeast Asia (JSA-ASEAN) is a network among Japanese Studies scholars from Southeast Asia. It was set up in 2005 to serve as a catalyst in promoting Japanese studies in this region. It is the only organization with the aim of bringing together major Japanese studies specialists from various Southeast Asian countries with their counterparts from Japan and other countries. It is hoped that with the combined resources of Japanese studies specialists in Southeast Asia, JSA-ASEAN would grow to become an important platform for the promotion of region-wide Japanese studies.

In order to stimulate interest and promote networks among scholars in Southeast Asia, JSA-ASEAN organizes a biennial conference as the major platform for a trans-disciplinary international exchange. The inaugural conference was hosted by Department of Japanese Studies, National University of Singapore in October 2006. The fifth JSA-ASEAN was held in Philippines organized by Ateneo de Manila University, Japanese Studies Program De La Salle University, International Studies Department University of the Philippines and Third World Studies Center in 2016.

The 6th JSA-ASEAN International Conference 2018 will be organized by The Indonesian Association for Japanese Studies (ASJI), Universitas Indonesia, Indonesia Japan Friendship Association (PPIJ), Japan Graduate’s Association of Indonesia (PERSADA) under the plenary theme Global Dynamics Impacts to JAPAN-ASEAN Relations”, and supported by The Japan Foundation.

 

The Japan Foundation will offer travel grant to selected paper presenters from Southeast Asia dan The United State based on the reccomendation by JSA ASEAN. No additional application beyond the submission of your abstract are necessary. Please include you need for travel support with your abstract submission. Graduate students are prioritized.

 

The establishment of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Japan’s relationship began more than four decades ago and it was continuing in terms of giving mutual understanding and beneficial cooperation among Southeast Asian countries and Japan. Through the years of ASEAN and Japan relations, there was naturally occurring dynamics in political, economy and security issues in this region which brought impact or influence on the relations among nations. Having said that, both ASEAN countries and Japan as well have been significantly contributing in making and trying as part of solution for peace, stability and prosperity not only in Southeast Asia in particular, but also in East Asia and the Asia-Pacific. In economic cooperation, Japan and ASEAN has a commitment that was marked by signing Memorandum of Understanding in term of ASEAN-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA).

Even though ASEAN-Japan relationship is in a good state, global dynamics and regional environments shifting require ASEAN and Japan to work together more deeper and closely. Globalization and interdependence paradigms among countries in the world presented ASEAN and Japan with new opportunities and challenges. Several new trends in East Asia since the beginning of the 21st century led Japan to rethink and reconstruct the Japan-ASEAN partnership. The rise of China, the acceleration of ASEAN integration, and the rapid development of ASEAN-centered regional architecture transformed political economic circumstances in East Asia. These trends are interconnected with each other and have transformed the regional political economic landscape of East Asia, significantly in changing the character of the Japan-ASEAN partnership.

Therefore, the key theme of this conference Global Dynamics Impacts to JAPAN-ASEAN Relations”, will be addressed in the plenary session, featuring a prominent keynote speakers and panelist. The topics of papers presented at this conference, by no mean, need to be confined to the plenary theme. All other topics related to Japan is welcome.
