Session 5: Nation-Building Through Urbanisation
Today, 54 per cent of the world’s population lives in urban areas, a proportion that is expected to increase to 66 per cent by 2050. Projections show that urbanization combined with the overall growth of the world’s population could add another 2.5 billion people to urban populations by 2050. Urbanisation has a transformative source of prosperity and sustainable development of all human settlements. When thoughtfully arranged and managed, the process of urbanization can contribute to nation-building.

Session 6: Managing the Tension of Race, Religion and Politics To Harness Nation-Building
ASEAN has a long history and tradition of moderation. For centuries, people of different ethnicity, faith and race have lived together in relative peace and harmony. Most of the region’s modern nations recognize this fundamental state of pluralism and have established equality of race and freedom of faith as legal, constitutional rights.
However, in recent years the fabric of plural societies has been wearing thin in places. In a world given to spectacular displays of violence and brutality along the fault lines of faith and ethnicity, this is a concern.
