Back in March I asked a group of leading academic analysts from Columbia University and the Australian National University to reflect on the question, “Based on what you know of the Asia-Pacific region, what keeps you up at night?” You can find their answers in this short video.

There are responses from a wide range of scholars including Professor Myron Cohen, Dr Kathy Morton, Dr Gray Tuttle and Dr Shiro Armstrong, among many others.

Responses from New Mandala readers to the question are also very welcome.

We should be asking, when it comes to issues in mainland Southeast Asia: what keeps you up at night?
