Ethnicity and Religion in Asian Politics

One of the main features of Asian politics and government is the complex nexus of ethnicity, religion, and the state. This module focuses on the colonial formation and postcolonial continuation of these ethno-religious features of politics, known as the politics of identity in Asia. It explains some major ethnic and religious conflicts in Asia; their impacts on national politics, party systems, state structures, and government policies; and the role of the state in this regard. The module is available to all year 1-3 students at NUS.
