About the journal
Since 1953, the Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography (and antecedents) has been a leading international forum for scholarship on tropical environments, localities and their connections. The SJTG publishes theoretical and empirical articles and reviews that deal with the physical and human environments of the tropics and development issues from geographical as well as interrelated disciplinary viewpoints. We welcome contributions from the humanities, social or environmental sciences that advance research on tropical natures, places or interconnections.

This special section explores cross-border dynamics for ethnic minorities on the margins of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). Our aim is to make a significant contribution to the understanding of the GMS and regionalization more broadly. We are among the first researchers allowed to do fieldwork in borderlands that governments until recently deemed ‘sensitive’ and out-of-bounds. Our contributions bring to light the variability of conditions for minorities, complicating understandings of ‘peripheries’ and ‘centres’, as well as the notion of a singular ‘region’.
