Contributing Articles to Online Journal on Malaysia

Obtained this from ASLI's CPPS. This would be a great way to get your voice heard. Do check it out at CPPS's website

Invitation to Contribute
The Entrepot: Trading Ideas, Mobilizing Opinions

Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI)'s Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) is pleased to announce its latest publication project: an online journal geared towards fostering dialogues on Malaysian matters.

What sets this journal apart from many other journals is its main objective: to bridge the opinion gap between communities who are invested in the study of Malaysia. The aim is to expose the general public to scholarly works, while offering them the opportunity to engage with the academic discourse. We will attain this main objective by bringing together essays on a particular topic from both published and unpublished writers, from scholars to students, from businesspeople to religious leaders.

In our efforts to nurture the voices of young Malaysians, we would like to invite you to submit a research and analytical paper on democracy in Malaysia for publication. Our inaugural issue will examine what democracy means in postcolonial, post-Mahathir Malaysia to see how Malaysia's political system has successfully managed or even failed to manage class and interethnic differences.

For this inaugural issue, we are inviting scholars like Khoo Boo Teik, Ariffin Omar, Eric C Thompson., Barbara Andaya, Wang Guwu and Joel Kahn to discuss various aspects of democracy in Malaysia. We believe that this would be a good opportunity for you to participate in and contribute to a dynamic and innovative discourse on Malaysia.

If you are interested in contributing to our inaugural issue, please contact:
