In this issue of Politikon: The IAPSS Journal of Political Science, we delve into two significant topics that impact the political landscape of East Asia and Southern Africa. Yeo Qin-Liang explores the role of pro-welfare civil society in driving welfare expansion in East Asian countries with conservative governments. This article sheds light on the evolving dynamics of social policy in the region. Tinashe Sithole delves into the pressing issue of the Cabo Delgado insurgency in Mozambique and its implications for regional security within the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). This study underscores the need for proactive intervention to address the conflict's destabilizing effects on the region. Both articles contribute valuable insights into these complex political issues, enriching our understanding of East Asian social policies and the security challenges facing Southern Africa.
