The Society for the Promotion of Human Rights (PROHAM) is organising an online conversation in conjunction with Nelson Mandela Day with the support of the United Nations in Malaysia, on 17 July 2020 at 3pm-4.30pm (Malaysian time). Registration can be made here in this link.
On 6 July 2020, I presented my views on parliamentary democracy in Malaysia together with Yap Swee Seng from Bersih 2.0 and Ooi Heng, a political analyst with Ngeow Chow Ying, a human rights lawyer as moderator. Here is the link to listen to the recording.
I wrote a commentary in solidarity with Arte Moris or Living Arts, a free art school in Timor-Leste. The commentary is available here in the Malay Mail, The Malaysian Insight, Neon Metin both in English and Bahasa Indonesia/ Malaysia.
Here is a call for chapters for a book I am editing with Dr Al Khanif of the Center for Human Rights, Multiculturalism and Migration (CHRM2), University of Jember, Indonesia on critical human rights issues in Southeast Asia. Please consider submitting a chapter proposal and share the call.
In my capacity as the Secretary-General of PROHAM, we issued a press release today expressing our concerns about the scale of ongoing efforts in determining the culture of parliamentary democracy in Malaysia. The press release is published in Malay Mail, also in Sin Chew.
