Across Borders with Dr. Farish

The overall trend in Asia is towards integration, within ASEAN and more broadly. Among the areas that stand to benefit from greater cooperation are Asia’s border regions. These areas are home to a fascinating interplay of culture that is often ignored at the national level in politics and the media. We hear about co-operation (and conflict) between governments, but what is life really like on the grassroots level where countries meet? And how is life going to change for the people in these areas? There is a host of stories waiting to be told as our host Dr Farish Noor continues his exploration of Asia for CNA, building on his fascination with border regions.
