The Center for Southeast Asian Studies organizes and sponsors a number of events such as lectures, film screening, workshops, symposia, conferences, exhibits, and performances throughout the year. Several of these events are in collaboration with other U-M units, and are often free and open to the public. To see what we have planned for this semester, please visit our 2020 Lecture Series page.
WCED Lecture. The Rise of Imitation Election Observers
Lee Morgenbesser is an associate professor with the School of Government and International Relations at Griffith University and fellow with the Australian Research Council. His latest book is The Rise of Sophisticated Authoritarianism in Southeast Asia (Cambridge University Press, 2020), and he is currently working on a new book tentatively entitled "Faithful Imposters: The Wrecking of International Election Observation." A regular contributor to international media outlets and consultant to international organizations, some of his research has appeared in Comparative Political Studies, Democratization, Journal of Democracy, Political Studies, and The Pacific Review. In addition, he has been invited to present his research at the Council on Foreign Relations, European Parliament, National Endowment for Democracy, United States Department of State, as well as the United States Agency for International Development, amongst many other institutions. His research areas are authoritarian politics, dictators, democratization, election observation, and Southeast Asian politics.
