The region has become a well-known tourist destination, region of rich biodiversity, economic growth and dynamic political development. It has inspired a great number of studies in various disciplines contributing to a vast body of knowledge on the region

Southeast Asia avails itself to scrutiny, scholastic challenges, and positive reactions to new-millennium changes. Through ASEAN, it seeks to enhance regional endeavor by formulating the East Asian Community with close cooperation with China, Japan, South Korea, and India. The dynamic growth of East Asia has captured worldwide attention where the opportunity for mutual benefit is wide open. Ethnic and religious tension challenges scholars as well as policy makers in their attempt to reach solution.
