Southeast Asia’s growth story is as impressive as it is well-known, with epithets like ‘miracle’, ‘tiger’ and ‘dragon’. There is, however, an accompanying narrative: of inequality, injustice, environmental crisis, and social malaise.

Jonathan Rigg holds a professorship in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol in the UK. Until this year, he was Director of the Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore.

Hyun Bang Shin (@urbancommune) is Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre, and Professor of Geography and Urban Studies in the Department of Geography and Environment.

The Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre (@LSESEAC) is a cross-disciplinary, regionally-focused academic centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
