By Rafiq Dossani,Wajahat Habibullah,Rakesh Basant,Dru Gladney,Joseph Chinyong Liow

Of Asia's 800 million Muslims, 215 million are minorities inside their nations. those Muslim minorities have skilled a chronic decline of their socioeconomic and political prestige. in addition to this decline, they're more and more pointed out by way of their religion and mostly accorded no different id for civic family. Why have those Muslim minorities been really affected in the course of a time of unheard of possibilities for the mainstream in Asia's remarkable period of progress and emerging freedoms?

Using certain analyses of China, India, and the Philippines, Modes of Engagement argues that key components during this phenomenon contain the linkage among socioeconomic decline, lack of political strength, and narrowing of id; nationalism and its linked connotations of the assimilation of minorities; the weak spot of civil society normally in Asia; and the increase in local and international alliances for protection and trade.
