Talk Title: Loser’s Consent and Winner’s Restraint: The State of Democracy in Southeast Asia

 

What are the keys to stable, effective democracy? Allen Hicken explores this question by drawing on the cases of Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines. First, he will examine the state of political parties in the region and whether they are a necessary ingredient for a healthy democracy. He will then discuss what voters need to know in order to make good choices. Finally, he will present two attitudes that must be present for a democracy to endure.
