The New York Southeast Asia Network (NYSEAN) is a non-profit initiative that seeks to raise the profile of Southeast Asia in the United States by bringing together interested parties. NYSEAN aims to create a community of individuals, groups, and institutions that share a desire to collaborate in addressing present-day regional challenges. Scholars, practitioners, and students based in New York City, the Tri-State area, or in Southeast Asia itself, are all welcome to participate in this initiative.
