Volume Two, an ASEAN Special Edition
“Australia can’t turn away from the challenges and shouldn’t miss the opportunities that the ASEAN region will keep presenting.” Greg Earl, Editor, Disruptive Asia
Join Asia Society Australia at KPMG Sydney for the launch of our second edition of Disruptive Asia.
This special ASEAN edition is curated and edited by award-winning journalist, Greg Earl and brings together 20 unique perspectives on the dynamism, diversity and changing nature of the ASEAN region and Australia's relations with its South East Asian neighbours.
To celebrate the launch of this publication, we’ll be bringing together a panel of Disruptive Asia contributors and Asia watchers from across academia, the arts, business, community and science.
Ahead of the launch, you can explore the first five essays, released to coincide with the historic ASEAN-Australia Special Summit held in Sydney in March 2018. The full publication will be available on the day in hardcopy and online.
Date: Friday 30 November 2018
Time: 8:30 am - 10:00 am
