Ethno-Religious Nationalism and Authoritarianism in Southeast Asia

On 25 October 2018, The Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives at the University of Victoria is hosting a panel on Ethno-Religious Nationalism and Authoritarianism in Southeast Asia.
The panel considers major flashpoints and key indicators for authoritarianism in Southeast Asia and the underlying societal conditions that have given rise to the political shifts we are witnessing in the region. This is part of their “Southeast Asia in Global Context” roundtable series. A distinguished panel of international experts will consider questions about trends in human rights, democracy, and enthno-religious nationalism in Southeast Asia.
