The Street and the Ballot Box: The Bersih Movement, 2018 Election, and the Implications for Malaysian Politics
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 mobilize across social cleavages and unite elites and society. Such a movement contributes to cohesion of opposition coalition, which is crucial for regime change. She will draw the implications of Bersih for the state of Malaysian politics since 2018.
