GE2008 AND THE FUTURE OF MALAYSIA 

17 October 2008, Friday 

NUS, Faculty of Law

Convened by Associate Professor Tang Hang Wu
and Professor Michael Hor

It is beyond doubt that the Malaysian General Elections 2008 will be a watershed event in Malaysian history. Much analysis and commentary has already been offered on the possible reasons how and why the ruling coalition lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament, and control of 5 State governments – both for the first time in over 50 years of Independence. NUS Law School has gathered a distinguished and energetic panel of experts to gaze into the crystal ball to try to offer their view of how the various aspects of government – eg politics, economics, law, human rights, race relations - is likely to change in Malaysia in the future and to offer their opinion on what the lasting legacies of GE2008 will be.
