Abstract

This book is a welcome addition to the academic debate on the political effects of ethnicity, religion, and culture. Edited by Joseph Camilleri and Sven Schottmann with contributions by eight scholars, it focuses on the states of Southeast Asia (SEA) that have either Muslim majorities or significant Muslim minorities. In their introductory chapter, Camilleri and Schottmann argue that, while ethnicity, religion, and culture may be politicized to serve the interests of political actors, they can also serve as instruments to facilitate dialogue and build harmony. The book consists of two parts. Part I covers ‘states, discourses and grandes idées ’. Made up of four chapters, it looks at Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines, and investigates cases of conflict and reconciliation. Taking a regional perspective, in Chapter 2 Camilleri explores the challenges and opportunities in applying principles of dialogue and conflict‐resolution strategies in multiethnic and multi‐religious societies in SEA. Appraising the structural limitations of regional institutions such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the ASEAN Regional Forum, Camilleri advocates the use of track‐two (i.e. non‐state) consultative processes to assist states in managing and resolving conflicts beyond formal negotiations or the bargaining tools usually employed by
