Student Activism in Asia

Meredith L. Weiss

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the defining waves or phases—nationalist, leftist, Islamist, and liberalizing waves—resulting from the rapid and radical changes in higher education that shaped Malaysian student activism. Local universities grew in size, number, variety, and funding patterns; underwent dramatic demographic shifts; and aligned in shifting ways with an international higher education market. The dramatic reshaping of tertiary education has influenced students’ self-understandings and position in the polity in such a way that their mobilization has been prompted by their identity as “students,” rather than primarily as Muslims, youths, or merely Malaysians.

Keywords:   nationalist waves, leftist waves, Islamist waves, liberalizing waves, student activism
