In the year 1527, the Mac Dynasty replaced the Le Dynasty, followed by the Le Dynasty rememergenced in 1533, resulted in the formation of two opposing forces: The Mac (1527 - 1592) in the North started from Ninh Binh, and the Le (1533 - 1592) in the south started from Thanh Hoa. To have enough power for their central government, in the first few years, both the Mac Dynasty and Le Dynasty attempted to recuit ex-politicians of the Le Dynasty (1428 - 1527), however the exact number was not high.

Having new politicians was the main preference, through the deployment of many Confucianism examination periods to look for prodigies. The amount of political workers recuited by the Mac was higher than that of the Le, as there were more exams taken place. However, the quality of Le political workers were equal to the Mac. The new generation of politicians had many contributions to both Dynasty and Dai Viet in the XVI centure. Furthermore, the Le Dynasty also employed many defectors from Mac Dynasty due to circumstancial reaons and these individuals played a great role for the Le development. The recuitment of politcians in the central government under the rule of the Le - Mac Dynasty was one of the greatest successes for the two sides in the XVI century.

Dr. Do Thi Huong Thao

VNU-University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi


At the middle of 19th century, the Vietnamese Confucian education system had faced the inadequacy of form, content and methodology of learning and examination that required a timely reform. Some educational radicals such as Dang Huy Tru, Nguyen Truong To, Bui Vien and Nguyen Lo Trach had proposed several proposals in order to modernize the country as well as the education. However, this study chooses to approach Cao Xuan Duc’s reforming proposals as they reflect the view of a scholar, a historian -mandarin, an insider.

Entered Vietnamese Imperial examination and awarded the degree of provincial graduate (Cử nhân), Cao Xuan Duc held several important positions in the bureaucratic system of the Nguyen dynasty (with the highest position of Minister of Education Ministry); he suggested a number of changes on learning materials, learning and exam methods. Based on analyzing proposals of Cao Xuan Duc, the target of this study is to answer some research questions: (i) what were existed issues of the traditional education viewed by Confucian scholars; (ii) how different Cao Xuan Duc’s opinion is in comparison with other reformers in the Nguyen dynasty; (iii) what were the problems of the Vietnamese Confucian education in the period of changing from tradition to pre-modern.

and Its Consequences Revisited


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Le Trung Dung

Nearly 14 years of French penetration (1886-1899) into the lands of Laos created a new land from a dispersed and divided region conquered by Siam to a united Laos in the Indochina Union, under the command of colonial France, a French colony.

When studying on the penetration into Laos, from the beginning, the Vietnamese element was always present in most stages of the penetration process, the starting point, the main support, the main path for French penetration. With the Patenôtre Treaty in 1884, Laos area was under the protection of France, and became the first French support point in the Laotian penetration.

Nguyen Do Ngan Giang

Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam


Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) is a regional organization that connects countries located along the maritime outline of the Indian Ocean who aim to promote cooperation in a wide range of fields. IORA Summit first held in Jakarta, Indonesia in March 2017 endorsed strategic documents such as a Concord, an Action Plan, a Declaration, which highlighted the high commitment of IORA member states. Among 22 members of IORA, Indonesia, with its geostrategic position, serves as a bridge between the Pacific and Indian Ocean with the Strait of Malacca. Since its declaration of independence in 1945, Indonesia’s foreign policy has always based on the principle of independence and activeness, maintaining a balance relation with powerful countries and putting its priority in the center role of ASEAN.

However, the current occurrence of uncertain developments in the region has made Indonesia more aware of the Sea. Since 2014, Indonesia explicitly showed its interests in the Oceans by pushing the idea of “Global Maritime Fulcrum”, considering the Pacific and Indian Ocean the strategic platform to maneuver this theory and hoped to be a Maritime Power. Subsequently, IORA has become an important playground for Indonesia to showcase its leadership and attract resources to better its maritime capabilities. Through IORA, Indonesia wanted to highlight its foreign policy emphasis of the Sea. The writer hopes that this paper provides a bird eye view of IORA and the important role of Indonesia as a prominent member who has made great contributions to all connection, cooperation and management efforts of this organization.
