This unit examines country-specific and transnational social movements in Southeast Asia, including those focused on labour, women, the environment and identity. During the semester we will explore how these movements emerged, what they have sought to achieve, and how successful they have been in promoting social change in the Southeast Asian region. The unit adopts a multi-disciplinary approach based on contemporary case study material from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore.
