Throughout 2018, Disruptive Asia will focus on the ASEAN region and Australia's relations with its South-East Asian neighbours. The ASEAN edition coincides with the historic ASEAN-Australia Special Summit held in Sydney in March 2018 - the first time Australia has hosted the forum on its shores, and one of the largest gatherings of Asia's leaders in Australia's diplomatic history.

ABOUT DISRUPTIVE ASIA
Disruptive Asia is a thought-leadership project by Asia Society Australia launched in 2017. It presents – through long-form essays – new perspectives and policy recommendations on how Asia’s rise is impacting Australia’s foreign policy, economy and society and how Australia should respond. Disruptive Asia deliberately looks at both external aspects of Australia’s relationship with Asia (foreign policy, business connectivity, international education) and their domestic implications and manifestations (community relations, leadership diversity, education settings and capabilities).
The Asia debate has long ceased to be an exclusive intellectual domain of foreign policy and business elite. Asia’s ascendancy and the resulting geopolitical, geoeconomic, demographic and social shifts affect virtually all facets of Australian life. Disruptive Asia is a humble attempt to re-start the conversation about the impact of Asia on Australia and our place in the region, and broaden, deepen and bring together the community of those who debate these issues.
