The 2018 Malaysian General Election: The Return of Mahathir and the Exit of UMNO
This issue of the GIGA Journal of Current Chinese Affairs analyses topics as diverse as the portrayal of good governance in history books, environmental contention, and political bloggers in Hong Kong, as well as many more.
Two research clusters in which the GIGA is a participant were able to secure funding in 2018 within the framework of the federal government’s Excellence Strategy. Both have now commenced their work.
GIGA scholars will present their research findings at the International Studies Association’s annual convention in Toronto at the end of March.
