The International Summer University - Insular Southeast Asia (ISU-ISA) was firtsly initiated as part of Pasai International University in Diaspora (PIU-ID) on August 30th, 2014 by universal historian, Kantian polemologist & phenomenologist Mai Dar (Marburg University) as a homage to a prominent Southeast Asian historian Ong-Hok-Ham (1933-2007). For the initiator of this project, "Ong-Hok-Ham is a true son of academic freedom, a lover of multicultural entity with tolerance principle and practice. Ong manifested his visionary freedom experiences not only in his creative works, but also, in his own unique lifestyle. He draws a clear position between myth and reality." (Quote of: 'Austronesian Diaries' by Mai Dar, Vol. 1, Berlin: BoD, 2002). This "short-term academic program" (in form of a four-week program) is designed not only for academies and professionals, but also for all type of participants, who intend to share the above valuable spirit of Ong-Hok-Hamian academic visions, to explore or to experience more deeper about the insular realities, comparative regional developments, global mutual influences or tendencies. The ISU-ISA takes place regularly in selected Southeast Asian university campuses, such as in Sumatra (including location/excursion in the Sabang Free Trade Area), Java (including location/excursion in the Thousand Islands Area) and other Southeast Asian Peninsular areas, including several related insular campuses in the Austronesian region. (e.g.: Batam, Penang, Taiwan, Madagascar, Pacific region, etc.)

Since 2015 this inter-university project had been developed in cooperation with several selected exellence universities in the Austronesian region and other partner universities around the globe.
