Maya Tudor co-authors article on nationalism in Southeast Asia

Maya Tudor, Associate Professor of Government and Public Policy, has co-authored a new research article on types of nationalism in Southeast Asian countries.

The article 'Nationalism, Authoritarianism, and Democracy: Historical Lessons from South and Southeast Asia' explores how founding types of nationalism in each country explain different regime types that emerged across Southeast Asia, and offers novel insight into how to understand ongoing battles to shape the nation and the people’s political position within it. In an era of rising nationalist fervour and eroding support for democracy, understanding the conditions under which nationalism either promotes democracy or bolsters authoritarianism is of critical importance to political scientists, activists, and policymakers alike.
