Nouvelle publication

Malaisie – Chine : une « précieuse » relation

Malaisie – Chine : une «précieuse» relation
David Delfolie, Nathalie Fau et Elsa Lafaye de Micheaux
Carnet de l’IRASEC n°7 – Série Enquête
272 p. (ISBN 978-616-7571-30-0)

Le cas de la Malaisie est particulièrement révélateur de l’influence politique et économique croissante de la Chine sur l’Asie du Sud-Est. Le rapprochement entre la Malaisie et la Chine, longtemps entravé par des divergences idéologiques, s’est renforcé au cours de cette dernière décennie. Dans un contexte d’intégration régionale de l’Asean sur fond de conflits territoriaux en mer de Chine méridionale, l’examen de leur relation prend ses distances avec l'idée d'une simple manœuvre hégémonique chinoise et révèle une alliance porteuse de nombreux bénéfices réciproques.

New release

Chinese Encounters in Southeast Asia

Chinese Encounters in Southeast Asia
How People, Money, and Ideas from China Are Changing a Region

Sous la direction de Pál Nyíri et Danielle Tan
IRASEC avec University of Washington Press
312 p. (ISBN 9780295999302)

This is the first book to focus explicitly on how China's rise as a major economic and political actor has affected societies in Southeast Asia. It examines how Chinese investors, workers, tourists, bureaucrats, longtime residents, and adventurers interact throughout Southeast Asia. The contributors use case studies to show the scale of Chinese influence in the region and the ways in which various countries mitigate their unequal relationship with China by negotiating asymmetry, circumventing hegemony, and embracing, resisting, or manipulating the terms dictated by Chinese capital.
