Plenary Session
Room: Main Hall
Presentation Type:Panel Presentation

The liberal and democratic recessions in the past decade have brought up multiple questions regarding the viability of a broad understanding of how political systems act within their borders and engage with the global order. The rise of populism in numerous corners of the world is a symptom of problems within democracies and the stagnation of political and economic liberalization in countries on the path to democracy. As a general trend and with some exceptions, Asian and Southeast Asian countries have engaged selectively in the policies and practices of liberalism. At the same time, the development of democracy has remained more limited than in other regions. This panel continues the discussion about the variety of political and economic liberalism by exploring the complexity of a) authoritarian regimes embracing some economic liberal policies, b) incipient democracies implementing globalizing economic practices, and c) democracies with significant state intervention in the economy.

This panel is sponsored by the World International Studies Committee (WISC) and The Rosenberg Institute for Asian Studies at Suffolk University
