Event's details:

Trends in Asian Politics: Mediated Populism, Electoralism, and Authoritarianism?’

This talk examines recent developments in the region, including the rise of Duterte in the Philippines, the recent electoral upset in Malaysia, Cambodia's controversial banning of the political opposition, and recent elections in both Indonesia and Thailand. Professor McCargo discusses the interplay between political protests, election campaigns and media events in an era of social media when the rules of the political game are being torn up and rewritten around the globe. These Asian developments have parallels and counterpoint in the United States and across much of Europe.
