To promote active interaction, mutual learning and information sharing among graduate students, scholars and researchers regarding regionalization and development in the Mekong Region, RCSD organizes annual regional seminars and tri-annual conferences. These forums aim to situate the region's emerging issues within a conceptual framework, taking into account both local and regional contexts, and leading to the establishment of collaborative networks among researchers, scholars and institutions in the Mekong Region. The regional seminars are organized on a rotational basis outside Thailand, and have been held in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and China.
As well as promoting vigorous academic exchange within the region, through these conferences, seminars and public forums RCSD also introduces local issues to the wider academic community; to policy makers and the public.
