Summary

This title was first published in 2002.The region of Southeast Asia has been one of the focal points for study in academic circles. Most of the studies concentrate on the economic development but social development received relatively lesser attention. The region has undergone a period of rapid transition and development in various aspects, such as education, social security, poverty reduction, labour protection, health, social structure and politics. The financial crisis in 1997 has posed a serious threat to most of the countries and territories in the region, and unavoidably affected the social development achieved in the past decades. This text is dedicated to examining the development and achievement of various social aspects in the region. It discusses the challenges and potential of this region in the twenty-first century. It is of considerable reference value and benefits those who want to have an overview and critical understanding of the issues of social development in Southeast Asia.
