The Street and the Ballot Box: The Bersih movement, 2018 election and Malaysian politics

Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

Drawing on Malaysia’s Bersih movement and the 2018 election, Dr Lynette Ong’s latest book, The Street and the Ballot Box: Interactions between Social Movements and Electoral Politics in Authoritarian Contexts, illustrates how a broad-based social movement that champions a widely shared grievance can mobilise across social cleavages and unite elites and society.

Such a movement contributes to cohesion of an opposition coalition, which is crucial for regime change. She drew on the implications of Bersih for the state of Malaysian politics since 2018.

Speakers:

  • Dr Lynette H Ong, associate professor of political science, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, University of Toronto
  • Dr Dan Slater, Ronald and Eileen Weiser professor of emerging democracies and Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies director and professor of political science, University of Michigan

Moderator: Dr Satu P Limaye, vice-president, East-West Center, and director, East-West Center in Washington
