Chair’s Panel: Marginality and polarisation

Societies and states in Southeast Asia produce exclusions and inclusions across different axes: gender, nationality, ethnicity, race, class, abilities and age. This panel explores how contemporary crises – climate, statelessness, social polarisation – are experienced and contested by groups who find themselves moving towards these excluded margins. How can exclusion and polarisation be mitigated and how can marginalised groups retain resilience? What is the scope for addressing intensifying polarisation and building trust in the face of multiple crises?
