Project Purpose & Description The Latin American and the Caribbean – Southeast Asia Academic Dialogue Forum is an online forum that aims to promote regular academic dialogue and foster academic cooperation between scholars dedicated to inter-regional and comparative studies of several issues involving countries and organizations of both regions, taking advantage of the use of online platforms, which will make possible to bridge geographical distances and reduce external dependence on economic resources.

Coordination is expected to rotate regularly each time between study centers dedicated to Latin America and the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia Studies in both regions. The topics to be discussed, which will be defined by the coordinator on duty, will seek to improve understanding between the people and, by mean of academic south-south cooperation, the rapprochement between the countries of Latin American and the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.

Among the expected outcomes of the forum, is the elaboration of a policy-oriented statement that mentions the challenges and opportunities, as well as contains recommendations and good practices, to improve academic cooperation and internationalization policies of the universities of the countries of both regions, while nurturing, by means of track-2 para-diplomatic linkages, the knowledge not only of governmental agencies to improve inter-governmental relations but also of private sector actors to improve trade and investments flows between the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.
