Yvonne Chiu is studying the soft authoritarianism in East Asia which, unlike the Middle East and Russia, bears the hallmarks of modernity and achieves significant economic growth. These phenomena interact uniquely with authoritarianism's accompanying self-censorship, withdrawal from public life in favor of self-interested material accumulation, and anomie.
