Money politics in Southeast Asia with Allen Hicken

New Books Network 2020

In this podcast, Allen Hicken of the University of Michigan tells Duncan McCargo all about an exciting comparative exploration of money and machine politics in Southeast Asia. This large Australian-funded project has involved extensive fieldwork over several years in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, looking at everything from village-level vote-buying, to massive government pork-barrel schemes like Malaysia’s 1MBD. Their forthcoming co-authored monograph will offer new insights into how money fuels Southeast Asia’s politics.
