Focus on the Global South Newsletter Volume 4 Number 4, August 2018
Focus on the Global South releases the 4th edition of Focus Newsletter, which tackles the issue of democracy in Asia and its different facets--elections, constitutions, (extreme) nationalism, populism, majoritarian rule, press freedom. Why democracy? As our editorial says: "Across South and Southeast Asia, concepts of democracy, justice, and human rights are facing contestation, re-interpretation, and selective application." Through this edition of the newsletter, we hope to contribute not only to discourse but also to the shaping of solutions & alternatives.
