China’s New Maritime Silk Road: Implications and Opportunities for Southeast Asia

Zhao Hong

In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping unveiled plans for two massive trade and infrastructure networks connecting East Asia with Europe: the New Silk Road and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (“one belt one road”). The idea of the New Silk Road and the New Maritime Silk Road signals a shift in China’s strategic thinking and foreign policy towards prioritizing the relationship with neighbouring countries. Hence, it has many implications for Southeast Asian countries.

 

Explaining China’s 2+7 Initiative Towards ASEAN

David Arase

China’s 2+7 Initiative towards ASEAN aims to create an economic, security and political partnership that will be deeper than ASEAN’s partnerships with other external powers. This partnership would be inherently unequal and China’s effort to secure this relationship should be seen in the context of China’s agenda to achieve great power status. China seeks Southeast Asian followers within a larger China-centred Eurasian community.

 

Islamization Policy and Islamic Bureaucracy in Malaysia

Mohd Azizuddin Mohd Sani

The implementation of Islamization policy in Malaysia, since independence in 1957 and aggressively pursued since the 1980s, has promoted the institutionalization of Sunni Islam. It has led to the expansion of the Islamic bureaucracy including the judiciary and security sectors. The Islamization policy has led to the general Islamization of education.

 

Coalitions in Collision: Malaysia’s 13th General Elections

Johan Saravanamuttu, Lee Hock Guan and Mohamed Nawab Mohamed Osman, editors

After the watershed 2008 election when the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition lost its customary two-thirds control of parliamentary seats, there was the not unreasonable expectation that BN would slip even further in the much-anticipated Thirteenth General Election of 2013, which is the subject of this book. In the event, the BN lost the popular vote to the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) but still retained the reins of government.
