SIRD is pleased to invite you to the launch of Sophie Lemière’s latest edited volume, Illusions of Democracy: Malaysian Politics and People Volume II. Building upon her earlier volume Misplaced Democracy, it features a group of prominent international and local scholars covering topics such as the 1MDB scandal, islamisation, refugee populations, zakat payment, ISIS discourse in Malaysia as well as LGBT rights. It offers an up-to-date and wide ranging overview of Malaysian politics and the status of Malaysia as a semi-democratic or semi-authoritarian country.

Launching the book will be Marina Mahathir, with Sophie Lemière of the Weatherhead Center, Harvard University, Angela Kuga Thas, and Lawrence Ross forming the panel, to discuss Malaysian democracy and its allusions through the lens of political science, anthropology and LGBT rights.

Included also will be cartoonist Zunar.
