Nation building remains an unfinished political project for most countries in Southeast Asia. Questions about how best to forge nation states based on heterogeneous groups of citizens remain unresolved and highly contested. The essays collected in Ethnic Relations and Nation Building offer new analyses of the difficulties of nation building in ethnically diverse states, with a particular focus on the Malaysian experience as well as comparative studies drawn from Thailand and Burma (Myanmar).

Based on recent empirical research and using insights from a number of disciplines – sociolinguistics, politics, sociology, media studies and social psychology – this timely book addresses three highly relevant themes: the struggle to mould a sustainable national identity in the context of rapid societal change; the particular challenges faced by ethnic minorities in the face of social exclusion; and the building blocks for national integration, notably among young people. Ethnic Relations and Nation Building is an important guide to identifying, addressing and perhaps even finding solutions to these longstanding problems.
