ABSTRACT

The presentation presents an analysis of the Asian Student Survey (2008-2018) to show indications of the “ASEAN-centrality mentality” among the elite university students in six ASEAN countries — Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Through the use of opinion polls, it emphasizes social psychology to locate interconnected among people of ASEAN countries. It explores the perceptions and attitudes of students towards member countries as compared to non-ASEAN states, the social connectivity among students of ASEAN states, their desire to study in member countries and their shared views on the rise of China.
