 Understanding the Process of Deglobalisation in Malaysia

We live in a globalised society. The world has gotten smaller, especially over the past 30-40 years. Then came the Covid-19 pandemic. Borders were closed for a prolonged period and there was a reduction in international trade. This intensified the process of deglobalisation, something that has been discussed in politics for more than a decade. 

So, how has the pandemic influenced – or continues to influence – a local process of deglobalisation here in Malaysia? And what do we do to navigate this?

That’s exactly what the book titled Social and Political Deglobalisation: Covid-19, Conflict, and Uncertainties in Malaysia, seeks to answer. The book is by Associate Prof Dr Khoo Ying Hooi from University Malaya, Associate Professor Dr Anantha Raman Govidasamy from University Malaysia Sabah, and Kavitha Ganesan from University Malaysia Sabah, alongside other researchers. We have a conversation about this book.
