Professor Holzhacker concluded his lecture by introducing the new Groningen Research Centre for Southeast Asia and ASEAN (SEA ASEAN), located at the University of Groningen and Gadjah Mada University in Indonesia. The Centre builds on the existing Spirit Indonesia Groningen (SInGA) research team on governance, to include the traditionally democratic, middle-income countries in the region, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines, and two countries in political and economic transition, Vietnam and Myanmar. The interdisciplinary team of scholars and PhD researchers are engaged with theoretically driven comparative research focused on governance, societal impact, and sustainable society in Southeast Asia.
