Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs

"Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs" is the English name of the German academic journal Südostasien aktuell. The internationally refereed journal focuses on political, economic and social developments in Brunei, East Timor, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.


The "Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs", first published in 1981, is edited by the GIGA Institute of Asian Studies (GIGA Institut für Asien-Studien). The journal, published three times a year, is part of the GIGA Journal Family of the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies' (Hamburg). The journal’s editorial board is lead by Marco Bünte and Howard Loewen.

The GIGA Journal Family is funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) as a pilot project in open-access publishing. Within the next two years the "Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs" and the other socio-scientific journals of the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies will be transformed into open-access journals. The institute will also continue to publish print versions of all journals.

Journal concept

The "Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs" provides in-depth analyses of current issues in political, social and economic life; culture; and development in Southeast Asia, as well as information on the regional organization ASEAN and its relations with the great powers of the region. In addition, special background analyses examine important events in accordance with their respective contexts.

The journal includes both English and German articles, with English contributions constituting approximately half of the content. To ensure the journal’s quality, essays are evaluated in a double-blind peer-review process.

The "Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs" reaches a broad readership in academic, administration and business circles, but it is also intended for practitioners and general readers interested in Southeast Asia. The journal is included in the collections of various public and university libraries in Germany as well as overseas.
