Dear Partners and Friends of SEA Junction,
April is a month of holidays with Easter and then Thai New Year (Songkran) celebrations and we will be closed on 13-16 April. In this festive spirit, we wish all of you peace and joy in the days ahead.
After the vacation, we will launch a new series of activities “Southeast Asia Divided” on socio-economic and cultural divides in Southeast Asia and about the challenge of realizing the promise of “leaving no one behind”. The focus is on the contrast in Manila ‘cemetery slums’ with a photo exhibition and a talk by renown Filipino anthropologist Mary Racelis. Continuing with the “ASEAN People in Flux Series” we will hold a talk on the history and features of labor migration from Thailand to Israel. On a related topic, there will be a class for graduate students on health policy and migration.
Hope you can come to our events and and help us reach a wider audience.
Looking forward to continued interaction.
Lia Sciortino Sumaryono
Founder and Executive Director SEA Junction
