Authoritarian elections in Southeast Asia

In many countries of Southeast Asia, so-called "authoritarian elections" have gained in importance: Elections are increasingly held and used in political discourses, but serve little or only very limited purposes of social control and co-determination of political power.

The dossier deals with this special form of power maintenance from an academic, activist, and journalistic perspective and looks in particular at Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar. The dossier gives people from the region a chance to speak and discusses possible options for action for Germany and the EU in this context.
