Greg and Elina talk with Dr. Sophal Ear, associate professor in the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University, and Charles Dunst, associate at The Asia Group and adjunct fellow with the CSIS Southeast Asia Program. They discuss Cambodia’s recent local elections, the direction of the U.S.-Cambodia relationship, and the small country’s surprisingly large impact on U.S. foreign policy. Simon is joined by Karen Lee, Southeast Asia associate at McLarty Associates and former intern for the Southeast Asia Program at CSIS to cover the Shangri La defense summit, LGBTQ+ rights in Thailand, and economic instability in Laos.
