Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asia Studies
The CSIS Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asia Studies is the premier forum for a sustained high-level policy dialogue focusing on Southeast Asia and U.S. interests in the region.
The Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asia Studies at CSIS has been fulfilling the requirement for substantive research on and dialogue with Southeast Asia with the goal of providing inputs to thoughtful policy since 2009, when it was known as the Southeast Asia Program. Since the Program began, the need for a serious and sustained policy focus on Southeast Asia continues to grow. As strategic interest in Asia rises, CSIS remains committed to its position as a premier outlet for research, analysis, and dynamic policy dialogue with Southeast Asia.
In this effort, the Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asia Studies continues to:
- Raise the level of focus on Southeast Asia through educating, enlightening, and making regional issues and leaders more accessible.
- Broaden the constituency of active and interested parties engaged in the policy dialogue in Southeast Asia.
- Develop a strong foundation of research based knowledge to encourage dynamic policy dialogue and support the policy making process.
- Attract the world’s most talented and knowledgeable researchers and thinkers to contribute to CSIS Southeast Asia studies.
