Charlotte Chin’s main research focus is on the contested development of civil societies in Southeast Asia, particularly in Malaysia. As an ethnographic science graduate from Philipps-University Marburg, she first worked on societal discourses about an intensification of Syariah law and its impact on Women´s rights in Malaysia. Her research focus was extended during her Masters in which she observed Malaysia´s 14th General Elections and the first change of government after 61 years. Hereby, she particularly explored the impact of civic societies´ work on the changing voting behaviour in the country. Other field researches paid special attention to political and societal developments within Germany, such as gender roles in Marburg´s fraternities, village´s perceptions of receiving refugees and discplaced people as well as the work of the Antifacist Action in Bavaria.
