This article focuses on the politics of cultural identity, with special reference on the younger generation of Malaysian-Chinese, particularly those studying in Mainland China. The respective policies of Malaysia and Mainland China are discussed in greater detail, while also drawing attention to the socio-cultural aspect of those policies. Then, the paper discusses the development, limitations, and possible changes on China’s overseas Chinese policy over the years by using the case study on a specific group of young Malaysian-Chinese who are pursuing their higher education studies in Mainland China.
