What’s Politics #9 - Neocolonialism, We Are Still Colonised Today

What's Politics is a series where we explore and break down political concepts and ideas. 

In this episode, we discuss a concept called neocolonialism. Malaysia and many parts of the Global South may no longer be directly colonised by the British Empire or any other superpower – after all, we don’t see European soldiers marching down our streets with guns. But the truth of the matter is, we still are colonised today, just in different, perhaps more complex ways. So, what exactly is neocolonialism? 

Our guest as always is Assistant Professor Peter Beattie, who’s a political economist and political psychologist at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). He’s the author of Social Evolution, Political Psychology, and Media in Democracy
