18:00 to 19:00
Online lecture

The domestic politics of the Republic of Vietnam, which lasted from 1955 to 1975, puzzled Western observers. The American-backed regime claimed to be democratic, but in actuality was an authoritarian regime plagued by factionalism. In this talk hosted by the Council on Southeast Asia Studies at Yale UniversityNu-Anh Tran argues that Vietnamese politicians genuinely favored democracy but disagreed on the degree of democracy that was suitable given the communist threat.
