Immigration Not Decisive in the Midterms, But Results Critical to the Congressional Debate

While immigration and the Latino vote may not have been decisive in the 2014 midterm elections, the Republican takeover of the Senate come January 2015 and increased majority in the House have significant implications for the outcome of the immigration debate. This article examines the changing dynamics and the president’s intent to proceed with executive action to shield some of the unauthorized immigrant population from deportation.

New Publications from ISEAS Publishing

Southeast Asians and the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM): State’s Interests and Institution’s Longevity

Evi Fitriani

The inauguration of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in Bangkok in 1996 was celebrated with enthusiasm and hopes in the two regions because this forum represented a breakthrough in Asia-Europe relations. The region-to-region pattern of the relations becomes the study framework that enables the explorations of central themes which include the Asian regional identity, ASEAN collective diplomatic prominence, and the informality of the ASEM institution.

The South China Sea and China-ASEAN Relations

Zhao Hong

From the late 1990s up to until recently, China’s approach to Southeast Asia and various territorial and maritime disputes was to engage in “good neighbour policy” and bilateral negotiations. In the recent years, however, Beijing’s actions have somewhat departed from this broadly benign approach. For China, energy security and maritime development are the main considerations.

The Future of ASEAN

Hassanal Bolkiah

The Singapore Lecture Series was inaugurated in 1980 by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies with a founding endowment from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), and augmented by a generous donation in 1983 from Exxon Mobil Asia Pacific. On 22 April 2014, the 34th Singapore Lecture was delivered by His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Muizzaddin Waddaulah, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam.

Vietnam: Straddling Southeast Asia’s Divide

Huong Le Thu

Some analysts see Southeast Asia dividing into continental and maritime sub-groups, largely due to great power rivalry. This paper seeks to address the implications of this division for Vietnam. Sustaining positive bilateral relations with China has been challenging for Vietnam because of the asymmetry of power between the two neighbours.
