Event Details

With presidential elections in the world's third-largest democracy taking place on February 14th, Indonesia finds itself at a pivotal moment in its pursuit of economic progress and global influence. To delve deeper into this crucial juncture, join us for an enlightening conversation and networking opportunity with Professor Yuhki Tajima, Director of the Asia Studies Program at Georgetown University, and political economist of Indonesia.


Professor Tajima will explore Indonesia's aspirations to overcome the 'middle-income gap' amidst a myriad of complex challenges, including climate change, technological advancement, poverty, inequality, democratic erosion, and regional tensions; most of which demand innovative approaches and collaborative efforts across sectors and borders to solve.


The discussion will also illuminate the indispensable role of higher education in nurturing the next generation of leaders capable of addressing these challenges. Through cutting-edge research, innovative teaching methodologies, and cross-sector collaboration, universities are essential in shaping the future of the Asia-Pacific region.


Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to gain valuable insights into Indonesia's geopolitical importance and the pivotal role of higher education in addressing pressing regional and global challenges.
