CONFERENCE ON COVID-19 IN SOUTHEAST ASIA, 2020-2022: RESTRICTION, RELIEF, RECOVERY (Day 1)
About the Conference

Southeast Asia’s journey through two and a half years of Covid-19 comprises shared and unique experiences. Research on the pandemic’s impacts and policy challenges can shed important light on how Southeast Asia region managed the multiple crises. In navigating concurrent health and economic crises, and in some cases political instability, governments and societies have had to go to unprecedented lengths in restricting mobility, delivering aid, coordinating responses, and communicating information.

At this conference, researchers from across Southeast Asia will present their findings and analyses of the manifold aspects of Covid-19. Country studies of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam are grouped according to four themes: pandemic management, economic stimulus, policy coordination, and transition economy experience. Each study provides a general overview and focuses on specific aspects to enhance comparison across a select set of countries. We also investigate vaccine procurement and rollout across the region, and ASEAN’s Covid-19 initiatives. Panel presentations and discussions will be centred on the region’s performance in meeting the challenges of Covid-19, and lessons to be learned for future crises.

This conference is supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
