  • Milk Tea Alliance: Constructing Transnational Identity by Consuming Milk
           Tea in the Asian Context

    • Authors: Pakorn Phalapong
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: Responding to democratization trends against the coercive influence of China toward Asian nations, the Milk Tea Alliance was launched by young activists in Thailand in 2020. The familiar beverage transformed into material culture to achieve political goals. This research examines its new cultural meanings in constructing transnational identities by consumerism. Qualitative research was done with primary data gathered by in-depth interviews. 18 samples were Thai and Taiwanese young activists. Results were that milk tea was culturally rematerialized by diverse consumer practice through the Milk Tea Alliance: social media habits when consuming milk tea daily; drinking milk tea during offline demonstrations; and choosing milk tea from a specific retail chain advocating democracy and the youth movement. This cultural meaning reconfigured multi-faceted transnational identity among participants, including democratization, regional solidarity, new Asian values, and defying Chinese political interference.

Qualitative and descriptive research were done with primary and secondary data gathered between March 2021 and August 2022. Data was evaluated by the SWOT analysis, categorized with a two-tier distinguishing between macro,
      and micro. Results were that positive factors (strengths and opportunities) outnumbered negative ones (weaknesses and threats) in international cooperation in this area, permitting continuous early-stage cooperation. Along with strengths and opportunities advancing cooperation,
      Thai weaknesses and Korean strengths on identical subjects were additional significant factors.

  • Terminal High Altitude Area Defense and the Korean Peninsula Security

    • Authors: sigit, Eunike Adelia, Andrew Taarega
      Pages: 53 - 74
      Abstract: This paper analyzed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) American anti-ballistic missile system capability of causing instability and security dilemmas in the Korean Peninsula. Qualitative research was done. Tensions have fluctuated in the Korean Peninsula since division along the 38th parallel north began in 1945. Pyongyang continues to augment its nuclear capabilities, while Seoul bolsters its military strength through alliances. In 2017, South Korea advanced relations with the United States of America by installing THAAD. Seoul and Washington, D.C. strategies are identical, to defend against Pyongyang's expanding nuclear capability. Research findings were that although THAAD is a defensive system, it may cause instability and new security issues. Its radar capability of up to 2,900 kilometers (KM) allows Washington to observe Chinese missiles. China has made efforts to undermine THAAD effectiveness in protecting South Korea from North Korean missiles. Regional security dilemmas remain unresolved.

    • Authors: John Michael Aquino, Carla Jobelle Culajara, Juan Paolo Martin Culajara
      Pages: 75 - 90
      Abstract: Teachers, as the sole source of knowledge and skills, should have the grit to improve themselves through constant learning. The study adheres to identify the factors that hinder the participation of teachers in professional development. This study utilized a qualitative research design using a phenomenological approach. It was participated by five secondary public-school teachers with ten or above years in service working in the Philippines. The researchers used a purposive sampling in choosing the participants. Based on the result, three themes emerged: opportunities, teachers’ participation, and factors impeding professional development including financial literacy, time in continuing graduate studies, and teachers’ workload. Teachers have various opportunities to participate in their professional development however there are hampering factors that they need to consider. Along with the challenge of teachers to access to their professional growth and reach every student, the eagerness of teachers to deliver instruction and keep up with the trend is needed and achieved by each one. Thus, professional development must continue and make a path not only for students’ achievement but also for teachers’ satisfaction in their profession. This study will further enhance the crafting of a teacher's enhancement program that focuses on the strengths and best practices of teachers. It will guide every teacher in Southeast Asian countries that they should value professional development because they are the ones who create the vision for ourselves and our students, thus, personal growth and professional development are successful, the foundation that they can provide to our students is also strong.
