Proceedings of the symposium organized by the IRASEC on January 2005 in Bangkok. 11 papers analyze the integration of the Chinese in their host countries and show that among all the minorities in Southeast Asia, the Chinese Diaspora is by far the most influential. Its centuries-old presence, its demographic weight, the richness of its transnational network, its cultural, economical and political influence in the zone raise a series of question. Members of the Chinese Diaspora have secured important position in the fields of politics, administration, education and religion. The existences of informal and trans-national networks can also help the development of criminal activities tending to forge business link with their foreign counterparts. Links between this mafia and the Islamic separatists movements could represent a new threat at a global level. - (GL)
