Malaysia’s back to the future

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

Malaysia’s unprecedented third change of government in the space of less than three years has clouded the nation’s future amid an untamed pandemic.

Is today’s turmoil a painful transition to democracy, or is it a return to the authoritarianism and Malay supremacist politics stalled in 2018? As Malaysia fights to contain the soaring human toll of the pandemic and works to revive a blighted economy, is Malaysia a unique case in the region or just part of the region’s receding from democracy and economic progress?

Join the panel of experts to discuss these pressing questions and what they imply for Malaysia’s near future.

Moderator: Kean Wong

Panel of speakers:

  • Prof James Chin
  • Assoc Prof Gayathry Venkiteswaran
  • Qyira Yusri

Organised by the Sydney South East Asia Centre
