After World War II a new alignment took place in the world as the era of colonial rule came to an end. In the subsequent Cold War Era various conflicts emerged as Southeast Asian nations developed different policies to handle the new era. This era would become the beginning of the political multi-polar world we know today. The panel will use a holistic approach to see how Southeast Asia became a focal point in various regions in the world by political and social groups where new centers of power were emerging and old centers were waning. The panel will particularly pay attention to China, Europe and India as well as touch upon other areas all with their own perspectives on Southeast Asia.
