    Coalitions during Transition: The Downfall of Pakatan Harapan in Malaysia

    The papers deal with the difficult transition in Malaysia after the 2018 elections. Since the defeat of the National Front coalition in 2018, politics in Malaysia is characterized by shifting coalitions and political instability. It is now unclear whether the political system is moving towards a form of electoral democracy.

    Populism in Southeast Asia

    The surge of Trumpism in the US and of nationalist populism in Asia and Europe, but also of leftist populist politicians in Latin America signify major shifts with reference to economic globalization, the role of political parties, the decline of “classical” ideologies, and the politicization of religion. It is still questionable how Southeast Asian countries are affected by these developments and whether there are characteristic forms of populism.
