If you’re in Canberra, and you’re interested in what is causing the fuss (as in the constant bickering) in Indonesia-Malaysia relations, then head over to the Australian National University for some answers.

Dr Marshall Clark, a senior lecturer at the Institute for Professional Practice in Heritage and the Arts, Research School of Humanities and the Arts, at the ANU, who is currently completing a co-authored book, Indonesia’s Relationship with Malaysia: Cultural Heritage, Migrant Labour and Politics (Routledge, forthcoming) will provide his views on the reasons for this fuss.

He will be joined by Yasmi Adriansyah of Indonesia, a PhD candidate from the School of Politics and International Relations, who will discuss on “the ups and downs of Indonesia-Malaysia relationship” while his Malaysian counterpart, Azmil Tayeb, a PhD candidate from the Department of Political and Social Change, will discuss the “close relationship in Islamic education between the two countries.”
