Syasya Roslan is a postgraduate at the Brussels School of International Studies, currently enrolled in her master’s programme in International Development with a specialisation in EU External Relations. Upon completing her bachelor’s degree in 2018, she worked as a research trainee under the Economics, Trade and Regional Integration (ETRI) division for the Institute of Security and International Studies (ISIS) Malaysia–immersing herself in foreign policy research, engaging in track-two diplomacy and dialogues, and understanding the role of international trade in Southeast Asia.
Presently, she engages with issues pertaining socio-political developments and doctrines of state-economy relations, particularly focusing on countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Myanmar. Much of her work revolves around the effects of China’s expanding influence in Southeast Asia, and the subsequent strategic challenges faced by ASEAN member states as China’s presence continues to grow in the region.
During her time at EIAS as a junior researcher, Syasya will be conducting research on EU-ASEAN relations, focusing on the complex dynamics of the regional institutions and the need for better engagements beyond economic objectives.
