Southeast Asia is an increasingly vital part of the world, featuring growing economies and populations, occupying a critical strategic location, and providing a significant platform for multilateral engagement in Asia through ASEAN. Trade, investment and new economic links between the United States and Southeast Asia have blossomed in the last decade. Interest in ASEAN and Southeast Asia within the United States is increasing, and the need for in-depth expertise on the region has never been greater.

On September 22 , Foreign Policy at Brookings hosted Ambassador Susan E. Rice, Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Affairs, and H.E. Mr. K. Shanmugam, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Law of the Republic of Singapore for remarks at an event launching the activities of the Lee Kuan Yew Chair in Southeast Asia Studies at Brookings.

Brookings established the Lee Kuan Yew Chair in Southeast Asia Studies in October 2013. Holders of the Chair will conduct high-quality, independent research and will develop practical solutions to policy challenges facing Southeast Asia and the United States. The Chair’s scholarship and activities will also enhance mutual understanding between Southeast Asia and the United States.
