Peace & Conflict: Resolution In The Mekong Region
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the February 2021 military coup in Myanmar, and the war in Ukraine, peace in the region was not perhaps an urgent topic to be discussed. However, the pandemic, the coup, and the war, coupling with the intensifying great powers’ rivalries in the region, have put increasing pressure on regional peace. Together with our partner Asian Vision Institute (AVI), we chose the theme of peace and conflict resolution in the Mekong region for Volume 4, Issue 1 of the Mekong Connect to provide insights into the factors, actors, and contexts that have caused conflicts, as well as the efforts by different stakeholders, institutions, countries, and ASEAN in protecting and promoting regional peace.
