In South east Asia, regimes there too seem to have been pulled into this global wave of democratic backsliding. Across the region, there has been widespread gr oss violations of political and civil rights (Kuhonta and Truong 2020), the sidelining of minorities by illiberal forces (Hamayotsu forthcoming, Soedi rgo 2018), and the intimidation of journalists and the political opposition (Aguilar Jr, Mendoza et al. 2014, Toha and Harish 2019). Although regimes in Southeast Asia may be affected by the worldwide illiberal turn, democrac y in the region is not newly on the retreat. Southeast Asian nations have h ad their own prior struggles with democratization. Further,recentregression s or failures to consolidate democracy are also deeply rooted in distinct d omestic struggles and histories. This proposed panel will explore the actor s and forces that have worked to compromise and/or diminish democracy in So utheast Asia. Through a comparative examination of various drivers— and var ious patterns—of democratic backsliding in Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, M yanmar, the Philippines, and Thailand, the papers in this panel will make u nique contributions to the study of regimes in Southeast Asia URL:https://euroseas2022.org/panels/compromising-democracy-agents-of-democratic-regression-in-southeast-asia DTSTART;TZID=Europe/Paris:20220630T140000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/Paris:20220630T153000 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20240718T223600 UID:euroseas-2022-compromising-democracy-agents-of-democratic-regression-in-southeast-asia-2 SUMMARY:Compromising Democracy: Agents of Democratic Regression in Southeast Asia (2) LOCATION:Room 3.06 DESCRIPTION:There is a mounting concern about the global state of democracy (Diamond 2020, Levitsky and Ziblatt 2019; Waldner and Lust 2018).
