- Arndt Graf Goethe University Frankfurt
In recent years, many governments in Southeast Asia have embraced the keyword “Industry 4.0” to label their strategies for digital industries, e-government, e-commerce and digital social media and services. Examples are “Malaysia 4”, “Making Indonesia 4.0”, “Singapore: Smart City, Smart Nation”, or “Thailand 4.0”. This panel seeks to venture into various aspects of the claimed “new era of the 4th industrial revolution” in Southeast Asia. Of particular interest are on the one hand analyses of economic and political strategies around “Industry 4.0”, and on the other studies of intended as well as unintended economic, social, cultural, and political implications.
