The Shadows of Success: A critical development geography of Southeast Asia Other events...
A public lecture by Jonathan Rigg, Professor of Geography, National University of Singapore and 2014 IAS Professor-at-Large.

We have become so used to Asia’s rapid economic expansion and the idea that the world’s future lies with the East rather than the West that the continuing and emergent challenges of rapid growth are often lost from view. Drawing on the experience of the countries of Southeast Asia, this lecture by Professor Rigg will explore the ‘underside’ of development. While not denying the enormous achievements of the countries of Southeast Asia over the last four decades, the lecture will highlight that in many respects the hardest challenges are still to be addressed.
