This thesis argues that the Asian Financial Crisis did not serve as critical juncture for Malaysias Bumiputera Policy. Short and long term economic and political policies continue to reflect policies that favor ethnic Malays. This work further argues that Malaysian state institutions caused this path dependent effect. These institutions include the UMNO-controlled party system and government-business relations. Short-term and long-term cases proved that the institutional structure characterized by the presence business groups seeking government contracts and the continuance of protection of local markets and, coalitions use of authoritarian ways to suppress opponents sustain Bumiputera Policy.
